Item description for Diana in Art by Mem Mehmet...
A loving remembrance of "The People's Princess". Diana, Princess of Wales, became the queen of people's hearts. Her genuine warmth and ability to empathize with others, young and old alike, earned her overwhelming affection around the world and her beauty and charisma made her an instant star with the world's press. As she grew into her new role as wife, princess, mother and ambassador of worthy causes, so did her confidence as a royal cover girl and fashion icon. She would appear on the front pages of magazines and newspapers around the world on a daily basis. Now Mem Mehmet has gathered together 300 beautiful and varied paintings that celebrate the life of Diana, the People's Princess. Diana in Art features portraits from over 150 artists from around the world including Brian Organ, whose seminal image is now hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in London, Israel Zohar, Duggie Fields, and Andre Durand. The book features American artists including the jacket artist Susan Goulet, as well as Andy Warhol and Ralph Wolfe Cowan (whose portrait of Elvis hangs in Graceland), along with many up-and-coming artists. It also includes many Canadians: Kenn Burkitt (a portrait that is made up entirely of diamonds probably fake!), Roch Defayette and Rob Surette (TV's Fastest Portrait Painter in the World ). These beautiful, at times quirky, but always revealing works of art cover every stage of her fascinating life and combine to make Diana in Art a unique tribute to an extraordinary woman whose life, work and beauty will live on forever.

A Book With a Look at Diana Through Many Eyes... Sep 3, 2007
I do feel she would've been fond of this book. There are enlightening quotes from a wide source of admirers that cast light on her spirit and life. I am under the impression that Diana wasn't the type to distinguish between the powerful and the common in her regard for people. Mem Mehmet follows suit with his selections which include the unknowns as well as the well established in the art world. I believe this was done in harmony with the way of Diana. Some of the work is serious, some strange, some traditional, some modern, and some simply comical. All are valid reminders of the affection and respect that were intended for her with each of these creative efforts. Most of this art is as original and special as Diana was, and all of it honors her. Congratulations Mr Mehmet, for following through with your obvious and deeply felt admiration for a lady you've helped forever remain in our memories.
Beautiful, tasteful tribute, with collection of known and lesser-known artists' work Sep 2, 2007
The feeling I have when I look through "Diana In Art" is one of comraderie and warmth, of course with a touch of sadness at the loss, but it is a celebration of Diana's loving nature and her generous spirit. It's also amazing to see the different art from artists all over the world who admired the late Diana.
I am one of the artists who contributed to this book, and am honored to be a part of this tastefully written, compiled, and elegantly edited tribute to "The People's Princess." There are a few works by famous artists, but also a large selection of lesser-knowns (such as myself) who contribute a wide variation of creative styles and personal views of the beautiful Diana through their artwork. I received my copy a few days ago and spent several days reading it, and I am honored to have been a contributor to this touching and very warm tribute to Diana. The selections of quotes by Diana herself, and by friends and family, all contribute to the tone and mood of this tribute to her....she is still terribly missed.
