Edward Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby, politician and statesman, 1881. Artist: Unknown

Edward Stanley, 15th Earl of Derby, politician and statesman, 1881. Stanley (1826-1893) first entered parliament in 1848 as a Conservative member for King's Lynn. In 1852 his father, the 14th Earl of Derby became Prime Minister, and appointed Stanley Under-Secretary for Foreign Affairs. In subsequent administrations presided over by the Earl of Derby Stanley served as Colonial Secretary and Foreign Secretary. In 1869 his father died and Stanley became the 15th Earl. He served as Foreign Secretary again under Disraeli, but by 1880, increasingly at odds with the foreign policy position of the Conservative party, he opted to join the Liberals. Gladstone made Stanley leader of the Liberals in the House of Lords, and Colonial Secretary in 1882-1885. In 1886 however, disagreeing with Gladstone's position on Irish Home Rule, the Earl of Derby left the Liberal party to join the Liberal Unionists, leading the party in the Lords until he retired form politics in 1889.

Joseph Chamberlain, MP, President of the Board of Trade, 1881. Artist: Unknown

Joseph Chamberlain, MP, President of the Board of Trade, 1881. Chamberlain (1836-1914) began his career as a Liberal and a campaigner for educational reform, and became President of the Board of Trade in Gladstone's government formed in 1880. After disagreeing with Gladstone's plans to grant Irish Home Rule, Chamberlain left the Liberal Party. He formed an alliance with the Conservatives, as an imperialist and protectionist, and was made Colonial Secretary in 1895. In 1903 he resigned from the cabinet to lead the campaign for protectionist tariff reforms known as Imperial Preference. In 1906 Chamberlain suffered a severe stroke, bringing an end to his active involvement in politics. He was the father of Austen Chamberlain and Neville Chamberlain, both of whom also became MPs and cabinet ministers.

Vicat Cole, landscape painter, 1881. Artist: Unknown

Vicat Cole, landscape painter, 1881. Cole (1833-1893) was an important landscape painter of the mid 19th century who specialised in naturalistic English landscape scenes. His work is particularly noted for its portrayal of atmosphere and light. Cole trained in the studio of his father, George, himself an eminent landscape painter. Early in his career he was not particularly successful, but after exhibiting some of his work at the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition in 1854, his paintings became increasingly popular. Much of his work depicts the countryside of Sussex and Surrey, as well as scenes along the banks of the Thames. Cole became an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1870 and an Academician in 1880.
