About this Item

A sharp and clear oval Woodburytype portrait of 1876 Woodburytype of Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, Chief Secretary for Ireland; approx. 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" size, on the original heavy paper 8 1/2" x 10 1/2" sheet; Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, first Earl St Aldwyn (1837-1916) British politician, this photograph at relatively early in his career, when appointed as Chief Secretary for Ireland; ".he had in 1885 handled ineptly the question of the Maamstrasna murders. The Irish leader, Parnell, had demanded a review of the decision to execute three Irishmen convicted of the murders. The cabinet decided to reject his call, but Hicks Beach changed his mind and offered a judicial review, thereby provoking wide dismay in the Conservative Party." Hicks Beach went on to become Chancellor of the Exchequer and an administrator of some talent - his political alliances were weak however and lessened his chances for an expanded career. (DNB); this image from the series of biographical portraits in "Men of Mark." by Thompson Cooper, Lock & Whitfield photographers; a few light spots to the margins, image not affected; a handsome and striking portrait of the noted British judge in very good condition.
