Mr. Shanks was recently interviewed. I was very impressed with his portrait of Diana and this man as an artist. His artistic talent equalled the verbal expression of his soulful thoughts in a way one could easily understand.

The wistful, regal Diana in Queen Mary's emerald choker is most assuredly a dignified and modern representation of the princess. I can understand how her brother would have chosen that particular expression for her to grace the wall of ancestors at Althorp.

The one of Diana in the pink satin is one of my favorites. I loved seeing it again,

All I know is that it was commissioned for Vogue, but I don't know why or exactly when. After it was published in their edition after Diana died, I wrote & suggested they publish it and a few of the others as postcards, but they said that Vogue wanted to protect the images and would not release them for use in that format. I've never found any more information about that particular picture, so I'd be glad to learn if anyone else knows....

Can we try to list all the portrait photographers and artists-painters of Diana?
I know she has been photographed for portrait by Snowdon, Patrick Demarchelier, Mario Testino, and Tim Graham. For portrait painters, I only think of Nelson Shanks. What are some others? For a time, Demarchelier was her favorite. He took, among others, the black-and-white photos of Diana and her boys at Highgrove, where they are holding the rabbits. I think it is likely he took the Vogue ones too because he worked for Vogue.
Tim Graham of course took the famous ones of the Waleses at KP in different years, mostly in the early-to-mid 80s.
I think Snowdon took all the ones that are seen in the Christie's catalog. The Testino ones are just amazing, not hard to understand why they are her sons' favorite of her.

Are you trying to list only official "portraits" painted of Diana -which for me means only those where she granted sittings to the artist. Or do you just mean paintings of her done by anyone who thought they would like to do that - not using personal sittings but only working form media images.

There is a finite number of actual "Portrait" paintings of Diana.

Bryan Organ, 1981 - Diana in black trousers & waistcoat, seated on a gilt chair in front of a white & gold door. (To commemorate the engagement)

Susan Ryder, 1981/2 - Diana seated, wearing her wedding gown & veil. Commissioned by HRH Prince Charles

June Mendoza, 198? - Standing, wearing a cherry red lace and satin gown (For City of London Guilds - The Grocers' Company)

John Ward, 1984 - Diana on a settee, wearing her wedding gown but no veil. Personal collection of the Prince of Wales.

Richard Foster, 1986 - Diana relaxed on a gold silk settee in front of a tapestry, wearing a long cream gown. (For the Royal College of Physicians)

Emily Patrick, 1987 - Diana seated, wearing a white sailor-collar blouse, & pale blue skirt, holding a letter, with a hat on a table beside her. (FOr the Royal Hampshire Regiment)

Israel Zohar, 1990 - Diana wearing the Travolta gown, but appears black instead of midnight blue. Seated, hands in lap. (for the 13th & 18th Royal Hussars)

Douglas Anderson, 1991 - Diana seated in front of a fantasy painted landscape, hands on lap, wearing purple velvet strapless gown and amethyst jewellery (for Royal Marsden Hospital, Fulham)

John Merton, - Triple portrait of Diana, wearing lemon silk gown with vee neck & full sleeves. (For Cardiff City Hall)

David Hankison, 1992 - Diana wearing pink satin gown with broad white collar, also bow-knot tiara. Very chocolate box style with fantasy landscape backdrop (commissioned by Worshipful Company of Leathersellers for HMS Cornwall)

Henry Mee, 1995 - Splodgy, impressionistic picture of Diana looking quite severe, wearing a dark blue gown with the sapphire choker. (for the Red Cross)

Nelson Shanks, 1994. Standing Diana, white frilled blouse and dark green silk skirt. Currently hangs at Althorp House. Commissioned by a "group of Art Dealers for the Princess of Wales own collection"

There is also one where Diana had been scheduled to sit for the artist but died before that could happen. The artist worked from photographs to fulfil his commission:

Theo Platt, 1997/8 - Diana, standing in a landscape with the National Hospital for Neurology in the background. She is wearing a black gown with broad beading around the top and forming a halter neckline

I have one further "official" portrait of Diana in a vee-necked red gown, painted I'd guess around the late 1980's, but I have no information about who did it nor who commissioned it - that's a work in progress....

I'd be happy to hear of any other Official "sittings" if anyone knows about them please.

She photographed so well! But, I have to agree with several posters and say that I prefered younger Diana. She had a little more plumpness to her face, and that WONDERFUL COMPLEXION!!!!! She had the perfect English skin.

I like to save all my pictures, whether they are portraits or not, starting with the date: "2007 August 12 trip to the supermarket". I find it makes it easier to keep them in chronological order. You may have guessed that I am a librarian with a keen interest in all matters archival.

Thanks for this gallery . Just to write down what is written on the 6th picture of the gallery, beside the car :

"I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
And when you turned to me and smile, it took my breath away
And I never had such a feeling
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight."
