C# - Create PictureBox via pure code

Hey guys 'n gals,

Could somebody enlighten me in how I could create a new PictureBox with pure code, please? I want to basically have the ability to create/destroy multiple picture boxes on my Form via code, rather than having to physically drag and drop them onto the Form.

Cheers!


[EDIT]

Sorry, forgot to also mention, I want to change the Picture inside the newly created PictureBox to be the Picture which is inside an existing PictureBox. So far I have tried this, but it doesn't quite work...

                System.Resources.ResourceManager resources = new System.Resources.ResourceManager(typeof(Form1));
                myPic.Image = ((System.Drawing.Bitmap)(resources.GetObject("pictureBox1.Image")));
                resources.ReleaseAllResources();
                myPic.Location = new Point(pictureBox1.Left + e.X - startX, pictureBox1.Top + e.Y - startY);

            pc.Height = 1234;
            pc.Width = 123;
//         pc.Load(@"c:\images\blah.gif"); //Loads a new image
           pc.Iamge = PictureBox1.Image;  //mage from existing picturebox
// Add the control to your form and show it
            this.Controls.Add(pc);
