Room 25
Portraits and Politics

Room 25This room is mainly dedicated to three full-length portraits of the great adversaries of later Victorian politics, William Ewart Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli, painted by Millais, and the Earl of Balfour by Singer Sargent. Another way in which political personalities of the period were represented to the Victorian public were caricatures, notably for the society magazine Vanity Fair, and represented in this display with a group caricature portrait of the Lobby of the House of Commons.
