Andrew MacLaren (1883–1975), MP, was an Independent Labour Party Member of Parliament, and represented Stoke on Trent, Burslem, three times: 1922–1923; 1924–1931 and 1935–1945. He fought consistently for economic justice. He was also an artist: a portrait by MacLaren of Neville Chamberlain is in the National Portrait Gallery.

A lithograph by the same artist, exhibited in 1918, also in the collection at The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery, suggests this portrait was completed around 1920.
