RARE Diana triple face portrait by John Merton.
John Merton, who died on February 16 aged
97, was one of the most prolific portrait painters
of the last century, and enjoyed a reputation for depicting sitters
at their best.

is undoubtedly the most beautiful
woman I have ever painted, Merton said.
The Princess, wearing a tight-fitting yellow dress, gave the artist
five sittings ,
one at Kensington Palace and four more at his studio near Marlborough
Merton worked on the picture for around 1,000 hours.
The painting was hung in Cardiff City Hall, and in 2005 was temporarily,
and controversially, removed from the wall hours before the Prince
arrived on an official visit with the Duchess of Cornwall.
