This is not a very large book (78 pages), but it does have some interesting things to say about Elizabeth's portraits and how they would have been viewed by their makers and the people who would have viewed them in Elizabeth's lifetime.
The portraits delt with in this book are: 1 Elizabeth as a princess (red dress) 2.The "armada" portrait at woburn Abbey 3.The coronation portrait 4. Elizabeth playing the lute (a minature by Hilliard) 5 Queen Elizabeth and the 3 goddesses 6.The Darnley portrait 7. The "Siena" portrait 8.The "ermine" portrait 9. The "ditchley" portrait 10.The "rainbow" portrait.
There are nice illustrations of all these portraits in the centre of the book. This book is worth a read if you want to find some of the meaning in Elizabeth's portraits, but be warned about it's shortness and wordiness.
