Queen Anne - Patroness of Arts

Winn, James Anderson

The latest biography of the English Queen, who has been brought back into the spotlight by Olivia Colman in Yorgos Lanthimos' film 'The Favourite', has been underestimated by history, argues James Winn. In between 18 pregnancies, eating, drinking and playing cards, the Queen made contributions to the creation of the modern constitutional monarchy, and the unification of Great Britain, while the arts were central to her life and rule. Illustrated.
