Edward Roworth PORTRAIT OF JAMES RANKINE LEISK signed and dated 1924 oil on canvas Commissioned by Barclays National Bank, gifted to the family James Rankine Leisk came to South Africa with his regiment the Highland Light Infantry during the Second Anglo-Boer War (1899-1901). When the war ended he remained in South Africa, becoming the Secretary for Finance, a position he held until 1917. His role in co-ordinating the finances of the four provinces of Union earned him the C M G in the 1914 when he featured in the Kings Birthday honours. During the First World War James Leisk took part in the South West Africa campaign serving on the personal staffs of both General J C Smuts and General Louis Botha. At the end of the campaign he joined the South African Infantry Brigade for service overseas but was recalled from Egypt for special duty at the Treasury. He resigned from the Treasury in order to proceed with his brigade to France where he was eventually made Brigade Major serving in Flanders and other locations. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre with palms and the cross of the Netherlands Red Cross in 1918. After the War James Leisk returned to Pretoria and in 1919 was appointed a director of the National Bank of South Africa. When he became chairman and managing director in 1922 he succeeded in extracting the bank from the difficulties of the post-war depression. Between 1924 and 1926 he spent a great deal of time in London negotiating with Barclays Bank, the outcome of which being the absorption of the National Bank by Barclays. He was made Chairman of the South African board of Barclays National Bank (Dominion Colonial and Overseas). 1 109 by 91cm minor frame marks to the bottom margin, minor abrasions throughout, canvas has been relined, this work has been restored

Additional Notes:
In the early 1800s, owner Jacob Eksteen split the Rustenberg estate in Stellenbosch. He gave one section to his son-in-law, who named it Schoongezicht and sold it soon after. Both Rustenberg and Schoongezicht were at their peak around 1812, with beautiful Cape Dutch buildings and flourishing vineyards. John X Merriman, who later became Prime Minister of the Cape, bought Schoongezicht in 1892. In 1941 Peter and Pamela Barlow bought both Rustenberg and Schoongezicht in order to reunite the properties.
