1987 'Her Majesty the Queen' for Baliff of Guernsey and the States of Deliberation by June Mendoza

June Mendoza was commissioned to paint four portraits of the Queen by different institutions in quick succession so she painted the same Queen, but with different dresses and backgrounds each time. The commissions all came up simultaneously so “we agreed on initial sittings for two, creating mad ‘which dress is it today?’ scenarios” (June Mendoza).
