The ‘Armada Portrait’ commemorates the most famous conflict of Elizabeth I’s reign. This iconic artwork was acquired for the nation following a joint appeal with the Art Fund, and is now on permanent display in the Queen’s House, in Greenwich, the birthplace of Elizabeth I. The Portrait is a complex, multi-layered representation of the iconography of Elizabeth I, as the ‘Empresse of the world’ and the ‘Virgin Queen’, but is also an outstanding historical document, summarising the hopes and aspirations of the state, as well as Elizabeth as its head, at a watershed moment in its history.
