A painting of 101 Merchant Company Honorary Members, Members and staff was unveiled by Honorary Member Lady Marion Fraser on 9 September. The portrait was painted by artist Peter Mennim and took over nine months to complete, working from photographs of each individual. The painting was financed by the participants and is intended as a record of some Members in our time. The Master said how much he liked the painting and how such a record of Members had not been made before in over 300 years of the Company’s history.
