QEII portrait[edit]

The famous 1954 portrait is at the Fismongers' Hall not the National Portrait Gallery. There is a portrait of HM there by Annigoni, but it was painted several years later and is much less famous. KRC58 00:34, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Rho-one-pound-note.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Rho-one-pound-note.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Portrait of the Shah of Iran[edit]

The story in Annigoni's career and the one that led to his fame was that of his commission work with the Shah of Iran; how he spent a month at his palace drawing sketches and doing studies of the Shah in his daily life, and making the man really upset when he did not pain a single stroke during his stay. Annigoni went back to his studio a month later, and completed the portrait based on the studies. Can anyone confirm this story, and perhaps find the illusive image of this Shah of Iran? -- Marcuslim (talk) 16:05, 12 May 2008 (UTC)


I wondered why there is no reference to the drawing by Annigoni commisioned by The House Of Lentheric to launch their new perfume Lentheric 12 in 1968. This I understand was first on show at the launch which was opened/attended by Princess Grace of Monaco. This painting was commisioned along with eleven other famous living artists to give their impression of, in their view the worlds most beautiful woman. There was an exhibition in Schofields, Leeds, UK and armed guards were placed on 24 hour shifts to guard the originals over the few days they were on show to the public. I would be interested to know who owns the originals now and why there is no mention of them on Wikipedia. Thank you Joyce —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:50, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Odd Nerdrum link?[edit]

His views on modern art remind me strongly of Odd Nerdrum's. Maybe worth a link? -- (talk) 10:57, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
