The Rhodes Trust have commissioned a portrait through the Royal Society of Portrait Painters in order to honour Wasim Sajjad’s contribution both to The Rhodes Trust and to Pakistan.
They selected the artist Anthony Connolly RP from among the portfolio of possible artists to create this portrait.
The Rhodes Trust supports Scholars, selected from around the world, in order to study at the University of Oxford. The Scholarships’ aim was to educate international young leaders who were committed to public service at the University of Oxford.
Wasim Sajjad. Sajjad himself a Rhodes Scholar, was the National Secretary to the Rhodes Trust for Pakistan for many years. He was the longest-serving Chairman of the Senate of Pakistan, and twice President of Pakistan.
The portrait now hangs in a line of portraits of eminent people in Milner Hall.
