Sir Peter Estlin, Lord Mayor of London
By kind permission of The Worshipful Company of Ironmongers.
"Sir Peter Estlin was the 691st Lord Mayor of the City of London. He is an alderman of the City of London Corporation where he represents the ward of Coleman Street.
As a Chartered Accountant Sir Peter is currently an adviser to Barclays plc. He was chief financial officer of Salomon Brothers Asia, and then for Citigroup Investment Banking, and banking divisions in New York and London.
The sittings for this portrait were held at Mansion House; the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London, during the city’s heatwave in 2019. The air conditioning had broken down and I remember feeling so hot and uncomfortable. I was just about to start feeling sorry for myself when I looked over at my subject Sir Peter Estlin, who was dressed for the sitting in the extremely heavy Mayoral robes and gold chains, and showed no strain whatsoever. Needless to say it came as no surprise when I learned that during his time spent at Mansion House he was affectionately known as the 'Smiling Lord Mayor'."
