Based on Buckingham Palace intruder Michael Fagan’s 1982 courtroom account of the monarch’s boudoir, Dexter Dalwood’s The Queen’s Bedroom is imagined with forensic accuracy. Painted in proud Union Jack colours, Dexter Dalwood offers a grim and humorous view to the inner life of royalty. Curtains drawn against the outside world, he portrays a meagre loneliness: the lovelessness of a single bed, only the portrait of a long dead relative for company. The spartan décor of the room suggests a regimented existence; the tight-fisted frugality of a ma’am too cheap to foot the gas bill is cheekily implied with the addition of an electric heater on the floor.
