A portrait of Beyoncé featured in a 2018 edition of Vogue will be put on display at The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery, reports Billboard. 

The photographer, Tyler Mitchell — who made history as the first black photographer to shoot an American Vogue cover, broke the news on Twitter on Tuesday.

“A year ago today we broke the flood gates open,” Mitchell wrote on Twitter. “Now I’m glad to share this picture is being acquired into the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection.”

In the photo, Beyoncé is seen in a shimmery gold Valentino dress, and regal Philip Treacy headpiece while she rests her elbows on a column decorated with a floral bouquet.

 The National Portrait Gallery later added comments to Mitchell’s Twitter announcement, and said: “We’re just so crazy in love with her that we had to do it! We look forward to adding this new work to our collection.”

However, the gallery hasn’t announced the date for unveiling the curtain on the portrait. The National Portrait Gallery also has a print of Beyonce’s first solo album cover of, “Dangerously in Love.”

Beyoncé's fourth Vogue cover came along with captions by the artist herself.
