Cecil Rhodes, Painting by G.F. Watts R.A. National Portrait Gallery Old Postcard

Vintage Old Real Photo Photograph Photographic Art Artist Drawn Picture Post Card, South Africa, Cecil Rhodes, Unfinished Painting by G.F. Watts R.A. National Portrait Gallery, London. / Cecil Rhodes 1853-1902. A clergyman's son who discovered in South Africa a talent for managing men and making money. The imperialistic mood of the time enabled him to adumbrate his dream of an Africa united under the British Flag. Ruthless in pursuing his vision, he could be very kind and charming. Daemonic energy brought early death, but the huge fortune left by Rhodes continues to disseminate his ideal of Anglo-Saxon leadership.

Publisher: B. Matthews Bradford England
Series No: 1407
