Painted in 1957 by the Italian artist Pietro Annigoni, this romantic and rarely-seen portrait of Princess Margaret is being lent to the Gallery by her son, Viscount Linley. Annigoni was one of the leading portrait painters of the 1950s and 1960s, and the portrait will be shown alongside photographs of the Princess from the Gallery's Collection by Cecil Beaton, Dorothy Wilding and Norman Parkinson.
