Lloyd George the portraitA portrait of David Lloyd George, which has rarely been on view since it was painted in 1936, has been put on display at the Lloyd George Museum at Llanystumdwy. The painting is by Welsh artist Vincent Evans from Swansea who worked as a coal miner before becoming famous as an artist.

The portrait has been loaned for exhibition at the Museum by D Lloyd George of Swansea and is described as a contemporary and honest portrait of the former Prime Minister who was aged 73 years at the time Evans captured his likeness.
