Our front jacket portrait of Lt Governor Lachlan Macquarie, attributed to John Opie, captures aspects of his character that are perhaps open to debate. His noble and imperious pose suggests power, coupled with vision and determination. Most see him as an heroic figure, but a minority find it hard to overlook his worst acts. Good or bad, however, history will probably judge him as mainly well-meaning and strong, forgiving some conduct we see today, as horrific, but a ‘product of colonial times’. Whether hero or part-time villain, at his best he was outstanding, deserving the title sometimes bestowed upon him of “father of Australia’.
