A painting of Her Majesty the Queen has finally gone on display at St George’s Hall here in Liverpool 60 years after it was painted.

The portrait by John Napper was painted in 1952 for the Queens Coronation but never put on display as it was rejected as not looking like her, the neck is too long but as it was meant to be seen from below the perspective would have been correct then.
I love the quote by the artist himself “a beautiful painting of a queen, but not this Queen”
He painted a second portrait that still hangs in Liverpool Town Hall.
