Elizabeth I Portrait to Go On Display in London

A 16th century portrait of Elizabeth I, painted by an unknown artist, is due to go on display at the Whitechapel Gallery in London next year. It is part of the Government Art Collection of over 13,500 works which are usually found hanging on the walls of government buildings, such as embassies. This Elizabeth portrait was chosen by Lord Mandelson to be part of the exhibition which begins with its first display at the Whitechapel Gallery from 3rd June to 4th September 2011.
