Diana, Princess of Wales, became the queen of people's hearts. Her genuine warmth and ability to empathise with others earned her overwhelming affection around the world and her beauty and charisma made her an instant star with the world's press. As she grew into her new role as wife, princess, mother and ambassador of worthy causes, so did her confidence as a royal cover girl and fashion icon.
Now Mem Mehmet has gathered together 300 beautiful and varied paintings that celebrate the life of Diana, the People's Princess. Diana in Art features portraits from over 150 artists from around the world including Brian Organ, whose seminal image is now hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in London, Israel Zohar, Duggie Fields, and Andre Durand. The book features American artists including the jacket artist Andrea Saltzman, as well as Andy Warhol and Ralph Wolfe Cowan along with many up-and-coming artists. These beautiful, at times quirky, but always revealing works of art cover every stage of her fascinating life and combine to make Diana in Art a unique tribute to an extraordinary woman whose life, work and beauty will live on forever.
