Grayson Perry’s latest tapestry, which goes on public view at the British National Portrait Gallery in London on Saturday is a portrait of a nation. As Grayson says “you could lay it out for a national picnic”. The style is based on a £10 note with the Queen presiding over the image as if she were “your auntie”, he says. “She might have stitched the whole thing in front of her hissing gas fire, with her brass ornaments twinkling in the background, Corrie playing on the telly and The Hay Wain over the fireplace.” Click on the image for a larger view. – Deskarati
