Another Visit to theNational Portrait Gallery

I went to go look at some classic royal paintings, it's funny because so many of the classic Tudor'/Stuart era portraits of members of the court or royalty are unbelievably camp so it was definitely inspiring, I think I understand why this route was my first impulse now, the subject suits the borrowed context. There were some great portraits of Elizabeth, there was one in particular that the plaque described as "showing her age", and by comparison to all the others she does look hilariously gaunt and sickly.
