Hello from Australia. I've been looking at your page for Sir Robert Menzies, which descibes him as Australian Attorney-General and leader of the United Australian Party.
Sorry to be a pedant, but while both descriptions are accurate for Menzies' early career he went on to be the founder and leader of the Liberal Party of Australia and in that capacity the country's longest-serving Prime Minister. Describing him as the Australian Attorney-General is a bit like describing Baroness Thatcher as a former Secretary of State for Education!
There are occasions when we are unsure of the identity of a sitter or artist, their life dates, occupation or have not recorded their family relationships. Sometimes we have not recorded the date of a portrait. Do you have specialist knowledge or a particular interest about any aspect of the portrait or sitter or artist that you can share with us? We would welcome any information that adds to and enhances our information and understanding about a particular portrait, sitter or artist.
How do you know this? Please could you let us know your source of information.
