Begin: 19.05.2018 10:00 hour

Elizabeth II is a living legend; her life spans an entire epoch. Indeed,  during her reign, she has seen the terms of office of all German Federal Chancellors to date, as well as those of British Prime Ministers from Winston Churchill through to Theresa May. Queen Elizabeth II is, moreover, the most portrayed person of the 20th and 21st centuries. With its many depictions of the Queen, this exhibition brings to life the 90 years of her reign. Its numerous photographs, paintings, stamps and coins come from one of the world's largest collections of its kind – the Luciano Pelizzari Collection – and present a comprehensive, multilayered portrait of the sovereign. They show the Queen as a human being and as a monarch,  they feature her encounters with important events and personalities  of the 20th and 21st centuries, and they demonstrate how her private  and public personas were depicted in art and culture.
