There are some on the official website I believe. (At least there were last time I visited it, admitably awhile ago...)

The King and Queen have posed for the painter Urban Larsson and these new portraits have unveiled

The king looks about half his actual weight. What an odd painting.

I like it. The portraits are huge, twice the actual size of the persons. Probably they well hang high in a gallery and then you have another perspective. That a portrait is flattering, is of all times. I like the classic approach.

Huge portraits in a salon of Noordeinde Palace: picture

I think the portraits are made for such a similar setting, they have that size. The classic paintings can hang in between such a gallery without becoming distracting to the older ones.

The artist next to the portraits: look to the size: picture

From that perspective, I like it very much!

He has been this thin since his late teens i think :lol: imo it's beyond flattering, bordering on "alternative fact" :lol:

2 portraits (made by painter Urban Larsson) king willem alexander queen maxima
and a Portrait of Queen Maxima by Dutch artist Judith Steenkamer .

Beautiful paintings in my opinion; ideal for the perspective and scale of their surroundings.

Great Orange Evening Dress for the Queen but the end of her Sash is not at the right place.

carlota 02-09-2017 08:17 PM

interesting that maxima has chosen a dress for the portrait that has been with her since the start of her journey as royal! she wore it shortly after her own wedding to WA, for the wedding of martha louise.

i think it is fitting - not only because orange is the colour of the dynasty but also, i guess, in a way to recognise the long way she has come from the moment when she married and became princess of the netherlands and orange-nassau.

i also find it so exciting that some royals stick to the tradition to have paintings of them, rather than just simply posing for official photographs. well done to them for sticking with tradition. :)

In this setting it looks really wonderful. The perspective indeed is different from that angle, looking upwards. The surroundings simply requested a classic portrait indeed. Me gusta!

Fellow poster Polyesco found these links. Together with the great surroundings and the correct perspective, these portraits look absolutely fabulous!

King W-A looks rather sleek and slimmed down compared to reality, :smile: but these portraits are extremely like their subjects otherwise, and I think they're fantastic.

Even earlier than Martha Louise's wedding actually - Maxima wore the orange gown from the portrait to her own pre-wedding banquet.

Very traditional and flattering. :flowers:

wartenberg7 02-10-2017 12:04 PM

I like it - but they indeed look like painted in the 19th century... Just look at the King and his outstreched, pointing hand!
