Sir Walter Runciman (1847-1937)
A three quarter portrait of the ship owner, Walter Runciman. He wears a beard and is dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and bow tie. He stands leaning against a tallboy and looks directly out of the picture space to meet the viewer's gaze. He has his right hand in his pocket and holds his glasses with his left. A man of strong character and striking appearance he was respected throughout the shipping industry for his individualism, geniality, and kindliness. The background is appropriately plain for this life-long teetotaller. His sailing interests are indicated through the model of a sailing ship sitting on the tallboy behind his left shoulder.
