CURRENTLY ON THE EASEL: PORTRAIT OF GENERAL SIR TIMOTHY GRANVILLE-CHAPMAN2017
Svetlana Cameron is currently working on a full length official portrait of the 31st Master Gunner St James’s Park. There has always been a connection between the Monarch and the Royal Regiment of Artillery, and it remains to this day where The Queen is the ‘The Captain-General’. The Master Gunner, whose appointment is approved by Her, is the link to the Regiment, presiding in conjunction with other senior members of the Regiment over regimental affairs and maintaining the Captain-General’s links to Commonwealth Artilleries.
Commissioned by the Royal Artillery Institution, after completion the portrait will be placed alongside portraits of Master Gunners that have been done over the centuries which hang in the Regiment’s spiritual and professional home in Wiltshire, UK.
