David Bailey - Her Majesty The Queen - 2021
In celebration of Her Majesty turning 95 today April 21, David Bailey and TASCHEN have produced this Art Edition.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the recent passing of her devoted husband of 73 years, Prince Philip, the Queen will celebrate her 95th birthday this week with a scaled-down get-together.
In 2014, England’s greatest portrait photographer David Bailey, shot the world’s most famous monarch, Her Majesty The Queen. Charming her to exude a radiant smile, what resulted is one of the most endearing pictures ever taken of this great British icon. “I asked her if her jewellery was real,” Bailey recalls. “She’s charismatic with a twinkle in her eye, the kind of person I admire and like to photograph.”
The image was used for the cover of the 2020 edition of Her Majesty, the critically acclaimed, definitive photographic history of her majesty’s public and private life from 1926 to the present day.
