24. maj 2018

H.M. Dronningen og Kronprinsparret er til stede ved åbningen af særudstillingerne ”H.K.H. Kronprins Frederik - Prins til Danmark”

samt ”Ralph Heimans Portrætter”.

Det Nationalhistoriske Museum på Frederiksborg Slot, Hillerød, kl. 15.00.

 

 

H.M The Queen and The Crown Prince Couple - 3:00 pm

 

On 24 May, the Crown Prince Couple and the Queen participate in the unveiling of a new portrait of The Crown Prince

at The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Palace.

 

The new portrait will be the centrepiece of an exhibition with the portraits of the Australian artist Ralph Heimans.

The exhibition “Ralph Heimans Portraits” displays a substantial part of the artist’s works, which include a portrait of HRH The Crown Princess,

members of the British royal family and international personalities.

 

In connection with The Crown Prince’s 50th birthday, the museum also opens the exhibition “HRH Crown Prince Frederik – Prince of Denmark”,

which through clothing and pictures tells about The Crown Prince with a focus on the events and themes that are central in The Crown Prince’s

life story.

Two articles about Ralph Heimans and the portrait of the Crown Prince and his first royal portrait, the one of the Crown Princess from years ago.

It's, IMO, the best portrait of Mary and I am looking forward to the one being unveiled today. For those interested in the BRF, it also says,

that he is currently working on a portrait on a member of that royal family.

 

 

And, I am looking forward to seeing the portraits and the exhibition in a couple of weeks time myself.:)

I love this new portrait!  It’s great to see Mary and the kids’ reflections in the mirror.  So many great symbolisms.

 

Does this painter always use a mirror in the background?  I liked Princess Mary’s portrait from years ago and using the mirror to show where she came from.

And Queen M is in it too.

 

You can see Heiman's work here. http://ralphheimans.com/C-O-M-M-I-S-S-I-O-N-S-3

 

Now, how am I going to explain to my travelling companion why I am going to have to stand in front of that painting for an hour to analyse it...? :rolleyes:

Wow, thanks for pointing out that the Queen is there too.  I didn’t even see her.  Also, thanks for the link.

 

I’m so jealous that you are going to see the painting in person.  Please share photos, if you are able to take them.

I hope he is hanging next to the one of Mary when I get there, but perhaps it's going to be later, after the special exhibition is over.

 

You can see the Queen here, with comments from art historian Thyge Christian Fønss-Lundberg, who I believe has been member

of some royal boards.

Saw this exhibition today. Nice to see all the objects, his old uniforms from the Frogman Corps and navy and the others.

The engagement outfits of both F&M and the wedding dress and the uniform Frederik wore.

The wedding dress I like a lot. It's very "Mary", simple and at the same time very elegant. I couldn't see the lace that you could see in the panels when

she was walking and started to think it was a copy but I guess they have been removed it for possible future use for the younger generation.

 

Really nice to see the Ralph Heimans portraits. Mary and Frederik were there, next to each other. The colours are really warm and beautiful and if you didn't

know, you would probably think they were painted at the same time. The new one of Frederik is really good and he does look like himself but Mary's face is

exactly like her. But, as a Dane said somewhere on DRF social media: "It's a painting, not a photograph". He is walking towards his family and I think his

posture is very much Frederik.

 

His family in the mirror: Mary looked like Mary but the kids looked more like "kids". Christian was the only one looking forward because "he represents the

future after Frederik", as a guide who was there with a group said.

 

There were several Danes there discussing the painting and I asked a young woman what she thought. She agreed with me that it was very good and so did

the rest.

 

Prince Philip was good too but I think he could/should have been hanging in a different place, not next to the Danes.

Prince Edward was just ok, not that much likeness, if that is what you want, Sophie better and Queen Elizabeth good too.
