Portrait in Parliament Hall

Lady Cosgrove in Parl Hall 2

Lady Cosgrove in Par Hall

Some good news for my portrait of Lady Cosgrove. It has been moved to the prestigious and historic Parliament Hall, Parliament House. It was up till now in the Advocate’s reading room, a great old room in itself but not accessible to the public.

Goodness me, it now hangs among the Raeburn’s and the Ramsay’s and all these 18th and 19th Century portraits. My painting is the only one in the hall from the modern era. (Easily seen by the 200 years of dirt covering the others!) Lady Cosgrove was Scotland’s first female High Court Judge so she deserves her place here in what is the oldest parliamentary building in Britain.
