I don´t like the new painting of CP Mary...I think that it is very dark to look at.

I had hoped that the painter woud had chosen som better coulers for CP Mary and her dress and that i vod had juste a bit more ligth in tha painting.
So all in all i am a bit dissapointet :( :(

I was very surprised when I first saw the new portrait. I knew that it would not be a traditional portrait, but I must say that this was not exactly what I had in mind.

That being said, I like the portrait very much. First of all, the skills of the artist are not to be questioned in any way. Second of all, I like the context of the portrait. The very palatial surroundings both relate to and differ from the Crown Princess. Mr. Heimans has, I think, succeeded in portraying Mary, the woman, wife and mother, and Mary, the Crown Princess of Denmark. Moreover, both past and present can be seen in the Crown Princess' portrait: In some inexplicable way, I both see a royal and common lady. When the palatial context is removed, you still have a feeling of looking at a royal woman - and that is indeed an impressing performance by an artist!

For a less watermarked and larger picture, visit the website of the Danish Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle: http://www.frederiksborgmuseet.dk/lo...incessMary.jpg

I think that the new portrait is good. I like that it's not a traditional, formal portrait as it reflects that CP Mary is morden and, despite being royal, has something the ordinary person can relate to. Saying that, it does also convey a dignity which is befitting of a crown princess.

While the artist is clearly very talented I dont much care for the painting, mary looks like she is locked up in her golden palace longing to get out, the face is also so very stiff and a little arrogant, she has a nice smile and they should have painted it. JMO:)

From Lasses link from the museum

yeah the painting is a bit dark. it seems to present mary as a tragic figure. while her mother's death was certainly a tragic event in her life, but given her subsequent happy marriage and the birth of little Christian I think most people would say Mary is not tragic altogether. quite the opposite...

Ok, just saw Adry's post with the photos. maybe Mary is tragic after all. that purple hat! eeewww!!! it looks like something my eccentric aunt hester would wear.

If you look at Mary's posed official photographs (like in fashion magazines and the court's website) she tends to have a serious expression. or more of a half smile than a full-on cheerful one. I guess that is her preference...

Denmark's Crown Princess Mary revieling a potrait of herself in the Frederiksborg Castle north of Copenhagen 07 April 2006. The painting, that is done by the Australian artist Ralph Heimas is part of the exhibition "Australian Visit" that will be opened to the public 08 April. Getty

On that last picture of Mary walking away, I'm not sure of what she is doing, but it looks like she can't get enough of looking at herself and has to turn back to get "just one last look" before she leaves!
And the birght purple bucket on her head has to go as well as the dark purple shoes. ormally I like what she wears, but this suit would have looked much better if she had used the splash of color "in or on" the suit rather than on her head and feet. I guess she was just having an off day.....I guess....
