<b>Marquis of Linlithgow (Governor-General)</b> John Adrian Lewis Hope, the Earl of Hopetoun, arrived in Australia to serve as the governor of Victoria from 1889 to 1895. During these years he travelled widely, investigating social conditions and alleviating hardship where he could. He returned to England in 1895, with a reputation for being one of the most conscientious governors in Australia. He returned to Australia in 1901 to become the new federation&apos;s first governor-general, but his popularity quickly waned, in part because his expenses were perceived as exorbitant. He resigned from his position a year later and returned to his native Scotland, where he died in 1905. In 1902, the Earl of Hopetoun was made Marquis of Linlithgow. www.emelbourne.net.au Marquis Of Linlithgow Statue - Cultural Artefact - eMelbourne - The Encyclopedia of Melbourne Online, eMelbourne is a biographical, bibliographical and archival database about Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, with links to related articles and images.

Do you know all about the artist of this picture? Tom Roberts wrote about the Federation ceremony to his son:&apos;When the great day came your mother and I went to the hall of the Exhibition Building, and without getting seats, walked quietly at the very back, and climbing up some rails, I was able to see that immense gathering of people from Australia, and from so many parts of the world. It was very solemn and great. The heads on the floor looked like a landscape.’This memory, together with official photographs and almost 300 portrait studies enabled Roberts to paint the ‘big picture’ of the opening ceremony. http://www.nga.gov.au/federation/Detail.cfm?WorkID=46996 treasure-explorer.nla.gov.au Treasure Explorer decommissioned | National Library of Australia
<b>Duke of Cornwall and York</b> In recognition of the significance of the opening of the Australian Parliament, the new King of England, Edward VII, sent his son and heir, the Duke of Cornwall and York, to Australia as his representative. The Duke declared the Parliament open in a grand ceremony in the Exhibition Building, Melbourne, attended by 12 000 guests. The first Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia was opened at noon on 9 May 1901 by the Duke of Cornwall and York (later King George V). The lavish ceremony, took place in the Exhibition Building, Melbourne. The Argus reported that:The ceremony was marked by the splendor and solemn impressiveness which befitted its historic importance. By the hand of Royalty, in the presence of the greatest concourse of people that Australia has seen in one building, and with splendid pomp and ceremonial, the legislative machinery of the Commonwealth was yesterday set in motion.The Argus, 10 May, 1901. www.peo.gov.au View The Duke of Cornwall and York opens the first federal Parliament, 1901 in a lightbox style window The Duke of Cornwall and York...

Reference: http://treasure-explorer.nla.gov.au/treasure/tom-roberts-big-picture/resources<b></b> Tom Roberts’ (1856–1931) original massive oil painting showing the opening of the first federal parliament, in Melbourne&apos;s Exhibition Building on 9 May 1901, by the Duke of Cornwall and York now hangs in the foyer of the Main Committee Room at Australia’s Parliament House.In the late-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the burgeoning sense of what it meant to be Australian was reflected in the cultural endeavours of the time—music, art and literature. The art of the early period of Federation reflects the nationalistic pride of a new Australian nation. Portraiture was extremely popular from the late-nineteenth century right up until the start of World War I in 1914. Artists depicted significant people in the community, as well as friends, relatives, and themselves. Roberts’ <i>The Opening of the First Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia by H.R.H. The Duke of Cornwall and York (later H.M. King George V), May 9, 1901</i> is a remarkable composite of these ambitions and interests. treasure-explorer.nla.gov.au Treasure Explorer decommissioned | National Library of Australia
