Restora­tion of a monarch

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

The cel­e­brated Ar­mada Por­trait of El­iz­a­beth I be­ing hung at Queen’s House, Green­wich, south-east Lon­don, after ex­ten­sive con­ser­va­tion work. The pic­ture en­tered public own­er­ship in 2016 after a public ap­peal raised £10.3 mil­lion, in­clud­ing £7.3mil­lion from the Her­itage Lot­tery Fund. Some 425 years after it was painted in the early 1590s to mark the de­feat of the Span­ish in­va­sion in 1588, it is now in the care of Royal Mu­se­ums Green­wich.
