A Royal year to Remember...

Rembrandt, Carravaggio, Ruebens... And now Hanrahan!

Irish Artist Michael Hanrahan visited Buckingham Palace in London on August 10th to personally deliver his oil painting commemorating Queen Elizabeth's historic visit to Ireland. It will now be part of the Royal Collection which includes works by the old masters. "Its amongst many famous Paintings going back hundreds of years so its in good company", said Michael Hanrahan as he left the palace where the Queen's private Secretary and the Chief Clerk of the Palace held a special reception in honour of the visit.

A copy of the DVD can be purchased by contacting Michael directly via e-mail or phone.
