More about this portrait: Queen Victoria, replica by Sir George Hayter.
oil on canvas, 1863, based on a work of 1838.

Queen Victoria came to the throne at the age of eighteen. She wrote in her journal on the day of her coronation: 'I really cannot say how proud I feel to be the Queen of such a Nation', and some of this idealism is conveyed in Sir George Hayter's coronation portrait. Victoria described a small version of this portrait, which Hayter painted for her private apartments, as 'excessively like and beautifully painted'.
