Painting of Queen Victoria (1843) on display at Government House, Wellington, New Zealand.

 

It states on the web site of Government House that:

 

"This large portrait shows Queen Victoria aged 21, about the time she commissioned William Hobson, New Zealand's first resident Governor. The painting is on permanent loan from Queen Elizabeth. It hung formerly in Windsor Castle, and is a copy of an 1843 painting by Franz Winterhalter, said by Queen Victoria to be “the portrait she liked best”. "

To obtain the best appreciation of the quality of the images on this site, they should be displayed at a relatively small size, because each image has been reduced in size to a maximum width of only 870 pixels, from the original width of at least 4900 pixels (or 6000 pixels from my full frame cameras). In addition, the images have been saved at a low quality setting.
