A portrait of the former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been returned to the College of William and Mary after being displayed at the State Russian Museum in St. Petersburg for a year. The painting, by American portrait painter Nelson Shanks, depicts Thatcher as the first post-colonial British Chancellor of the College. “She’s a real presence in the Sir Christopher Wren building – both the subject and the portrait. Our visitors and students seem to have a personal reaction to this portrait, and I think that says something about the sitter,” director of Historic Campus Louise Kale said to William and Mary News.
