Sitter associated with 310 portraits
The grand old man of British politics; leader of the Liberal Party and prime minister in four governments from 1868 to 1894. Gladstone was responsible for major reforms in every sphere of national life, and for the development of imperial foreign policy. He divided the party on the issue of the Irish Home Rule and stamped his moral authority on the politics of his time. He was a considerable scholar and author in his own right.
