In 2004, the Jersey Heritage commissioned artist, Chris Levine, to create a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait served as an emblem of the Island of Jersey’s 800-year long allegiance to the Crown. Titled Equanimity, this work was displayed at the National Portrait Gallery in 2011 and reimagined as The Diamond Queen a year later in 2012. Another work that derived from Levine’s collaboration with the Queen was Lightness of Being. This 2008 portrait is said to be one of the most renowned 21st-century representations of the reigning British monarch.
