BBC says,"The portrait was painted in Mr Blair's last months in office
A portrait of Tony Blair, painted in his final few months as prime minister, has been unveiled in Westminster.
Mr Blair sat for artist Phil Hale in the PM's official country residence at Chequers for the portrait, which will be hung in Portcullis House.
Mr Hale said Mr Blair had had "more pressing concerns than prettifying himself for a picture". In an e-mail he said he was "tired and distracted"."

Tony was no king, but his picture could be entitled, "Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown".
