Portraits of Margaret Thatcher

The National portrait gallery alone has thirty portraits of Margeret Thatcher, some on her own, some in groups, some paintings, some etchings and lots of photographs.

One thing is for certain her legacy and her image will never be forgotten. Looking at this handful of portraits I urge you to remember that whatever her politics she was a person just like any other.

"I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left."  Margaret Thatcher
