  • General note

    The back of the original stretcher bears a handwritten inscription that has been pasted on. It reads, "Take notice that none are original pictures of Governor Macquarie but what has got the name of Read marked in Latin with the seal annext Governor Macquarie never sat to any artist in this colony but Read [Snr?] Lego [artist? v?] Sydney 1822 [red wax seal]".
    Another portrait of Lachlan Macquarie drawn by Read Senior is located in the Mitchell Library at P2/144.

    For notes on this drawing and other portraits of Macquarie, see PXn 93.
    Provenance of a portrait of Lachlan Macquarie by Read, dated 1822, is derived from a list of material that was deposited with the National Art Gallery (Art Gallery of N.S.W.), prior to the Mitchell Library's opening in 1910. It is possible that the portrait in question might be P2/144.
