About the artwork

Embrace Pantone's official colour of 2019 (living coral) precisely mixed here for Marie Antoinette's hair! Stunning large contemporary portrait of the notorious Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, set in bespoke contemporary gilt frame. This piece is inspired by the artist’s permanent portrait gallery installed in London’s prestigious new Bankside Hotel. According to the Robb Report (American luxury lifestyle magazine), “The acclaimed Gorrill, who describes her work as “vandalizing old masters and reviving art historical portraits through photobombing and incorporating elements from contemporary subculture” submitted three portraits to Bankside’s gallery. In the works, Gorrill has drawn inspiration from the hotel’s South Bank ‘hood and the staff of the property itself, incorporating their features into the portraits that represent Mona Lisa, Shakespeare, and Sir Christopher Wren.” The artist’s work has also been discussed recently in the Telegraph, who note: ‘”This British artist’s collage style of taking a famous image and adapting it with incongruous 21st-century adornments – a process she has called “vandalising old masters and reviving historical portraits through photo-bombing
