Leslie Watts Portrait Chrystia Freeland

Chrystia Freeland's portrait for Rhodes House, Oxford, UK by Stratford artist Leslie Watts.
Last fall Leslie received a commission from the RP (Royal Society of Portrait Painters) in the UK: a portrait of Canada's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, for Rhodes House in Oxford. The portrait is now hanging above the Head Table in Milner Hall, alongside Nelson Mandela, Cecil Rhodes, and the Second Century founders. We are delighted to share these photos of the painting as Leslie photographed it before sending it to Oxford, and as it now looks in its frame at Rhodes House.
