Artist's Description

Introducing “Royal Collection” by Serge Averbukh, showcasing paintings of royal regalia and heraldry of past and present from around the world. Here you will find framed and wrapped/stretched canvas fine art prints, featuring Imperial Tudor Crown over Red Velvet.
The Tudor Crown, also known as the King’s Crown or Imperial Crown, is a widely used symbol in heraldry of the United Kingdom. Officially it was used from 1902 to 1953 representing not only the British monarch personally, but also “the Crown”, meaning the sovereign source of governmental authority. As such, it appeared on numerous official emblems in the United Kingdom, British Empire and Commonwealth.
While various crown symbols had been used for this purpose for many years previously, the specific Tudor Crown design was standardized at the request of Edward VII. It was never intended to represent any actual physical crown, although in shape it bears a close resemblance to the small diamond crown of Queen Victoria.
Upon the accession of Elizabeth II, she requested the design to be replaced with a representation of the St Edward’s Crown (with depressed arches) which she wore at her coronation. Many, though not all, of the derived designs around the world were updated to match.
