Queen Elizabeth succeeded her father George VI in 1952. This iconic set of portraits of the queen is part of a series entitled Reigning Queens, which includes Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and Queen Ntombi of Swaziland, and is derived from an official 1977 Jubilee photograph by Peter Grugeon. Warhol has treated the queen not as a monarch, but as one of the many celebrities he depicted. He once said 'I want to be as famous as the Queen of England'. His approach reinvigorated the traditional presentation of royalty.
