A very large portrait showing Lord Lewin, full-length, wearing the uniform of Admiral of the Fleet. It was commissioned in 1995 to commemorate Lord Lewin's period as Chairman of the Trustees of the National Maritime Museum, 1987–1995 and it reflects on the Admiral's long and distinguished service in the Royal Navy from 1939, as well as his 50-year association with the College. He is positioned in the Painted Hall of the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich, the main ceiling of which was decorated by Sir James Thornhill in 1707–1712, symbolising the triumph of Peace and Liberty over Tyranny.
