Part is an unfinished Arthur Lismer portrait of Arthur Stanley Mackenzie, commissioned for One hundred years of Dalhousie, 1818–1918 (1920). While the face appears in detail, the body is only roughly sketched. This is one of several very similar Lismer portraits of President Mackenzie, none of which was published in the centenary book, in which a photographic portrait was used. The image was reproduced in P.B. Waite, The Lives of Dalhousie University, volume one, 1818–1925 (1994), accompanied by the caption: "A Lismer sketch done from life in 1919."
