Critical Review

Throughout his life, Warhol was inspired by fame and political influence. This interest continued when Warhol set out to create one of his largest portfolios in 1985. The resulting Reigning Queens features four monarchs who ruled in their own right at the time of production: Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, and Queen Ntombi Twala of Swaziland. Warhol created these images from official portraits, but adapted them to his signature style of bold colours and flattened contrast. Warhol’s image of Queen Elizabeth II was acquired by the Royal Collection in 2012.
