Pietro Annigoni (1910-1988) - Portrait Queen Elizabeth II (1956)
Australia 50c Stamp Issued 2006
Australia still continues to issue stamps to commemorate the Queen's Birthday each year, in addition to observing a long weekend to mark the occasion. Strangely enough, this is done in June, even though it is not the Queens Birthday - any excuse for a public holiday!!
Annigoni's painting of the queen was depicting in the 2006 Queen's Birthday issue, marking the 50th Anniversary of the completion of this regal portrait.
