On Friday, June 12, 2015, Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall viewed the exhibition, The Last Tide, at the Queen’s Gallery in London.
This special exhibition, curated by artist and Artistic Director of the Royal Drawing School, Ms. Catherine Goodman, displays:
“…12 portraits of veterans of D-Day, inspired and commissioned by HRH The Prince of Wales following his attendance at the 70th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy last year.
The portraits pay tribute to some of the extraordinary men that played a role in the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944. The largest amphibious invasion in history, the D-Day landings involved some 7,700 ships and 12,000 aircraft and led to the liberation of German-occupied France.
The 12 veterans are shown wearing their medals and in some instances their regimental berets. All of them served in regiments with which The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have a formal affiliation. Unique and poignant, the portraits have been created by twelve different artists, among them Jonathan Yeo, James Lloyd, Ishbel Myerscough and Stuart Pearson Wright.”
The Last Tide will be open to the public until June 17, 2015. Next January 2016 the exhibition will be shown at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland.
