Vintage matte-finish 14.5 x 19.25 portrait of Elizabeth wearing her glimmering crown jewels by Dorothy Wilding, affixed to its original 16.5 x 22.5 mount, signed on the mount in fountain pen, “Elizabeth R, 1953.” Reverse bears the original label from Wilding’s studio, numbered "015957J." In fine condition. This portrait was taken at a sitting in the year of Elizabeth’s accession to the throne in 1952, and has become one of the defining images of the early years of her reign. It is a stunning photograph that beautifully captures the Queen’s youth and regal splendor, and is truly impressive in its tremendous size and clarity. An ideal portrait signed during the year of her coronation.
