With the passing of Britain’s only female prime minister - and quite possibly the most powerful leader this country has ever seen - love her or hate her, these talented artists and their depictions of Margaret Thatcher are currently on display at the DegreeArt gallery in Bethnal Green, London. The featured paintings and illustrations are from DegreeArt's represented artists: Alex Arnell, Carolina Piteira, Nick Lord, Mirra Birkinovitch, and Ute Panella. Through various mediums and styles, Baroness Thatcher has been captured at various points of her life. Some of these pieces depict political meanings, whereas others merely represent a political icon of our time. A humble tribute, given this week's events.
