Modern portrait of the queen unveiled

At the beginning of November a new portrait of her Majesty the queen painted by the Irish artist Colin Davidson was unveiled. The artist spent over a year on painting the monarch based on pictures and previous paintings. In an interview, he mentions his awareness of the weight and importance which comes along with the royal’s state in the world. Her Majesty also found the time to visit the Lyric Theatre in Belfast and to meet the Deputy First Minister Martin McGuiness for the first time.

Art in general and paintings like this in particular have a major influence on the world’s policy. The importance of art is not to be underestimated and our current educational system sadly does not pay enough attention to developing artistic skills in children.
