Fifty years after his Tate exhibition, The Elizabethan Image, Sir Roy Strong returns with fresh eyes to the Virgin Queen, the court and the first Elizabethan age. His glorious new book considers not only portraits of the queen and her courtiers but also of the aspiring middle class. This perceptive examination of one of the most fascinating periods of British art reveals many parallels with our own age and we look forward to hearing more from Britain’s leading authority on Elizabethan portraiture. Sir Roy Strong is a historian, writer, broadcaster and former director of both the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
