Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother (1900-2002)
This bronze portrait of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother was commissioned by the Honourable Society of the Middle Temple to commemorate her 90th birthday. It was produced in a limited series of six casts, this being the first one. The head is set on a black marble cube. The pedestal was designed by Viscount Linley, the Queen Mother's grandson, and is made of English walnut with satinwood inlay and ebonized stringing.
Queen Elizabeth is depicted looking forward with her hair arranged in a low bun at the back of the head.
David Cregeen is a British sculptor. Other royal portraits by him include a 1992 bust of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and a 1996 bust of HRH The Prince of Wales.
