Curatorial description (Accessed: 30 November 2018)
David Livingstone was one of the great Christian missionaries of the nineteenth century, and fought the slave trade in Africa throughout his life with great dedication. His journey from coast to coast and his discovery of Victoria Falls made him Britain's national hero. This is the most successful portrait of Livingstone, taken in his sisters' house in Hamilton in 1864. The cap on the table is his 'Consul's cap', symbolising his authority as a consul-on-the-move in the Zambezi expedition (1858-1864).
