Ahead of its new exhibition honouring the life of Queen Elizabeth II, London's Quantus Gallery quotes the monarch who died on 8 September.

"It has always been easy to hate and destroy. To build and to cherish is much more difficult."

Opening their new exhibition, they share: "From Warhol to Freud, to our very own Christian Furr, the queen was a great source of inspiration for the arts. She was a 'patron, protector and supporter' of the Royal Academy of Arts, and opened 'The Queen's Gallery' in 1962 (and again in 2002), which exhibits a rotating selection of artworks, from the Royal Collection.

"We pay our respects to Her Majesty, and her extraordinary 70-year reign."
