Portrait of the architect Henry Thomas Hare (1861-1921) by William Llewellyn. Henry Hare was the architect who designed the new buildings of the University College of North Wales, Bangor, on Penrallt overlooking the city. Hare's design incorporated sandstone from Cefn, near Ruabon, and slate from the Preselau, Pembrokeshire. The new buildings were officially opened on 14 July 1911 by the Prince of Wales, the day after his investiture at Caernarfon Castle.

Hare was a native of Scarborough and had studied at Paris before establishing his practice in London. He served as president of the Architectural Society in 1902 and president of the Royal Institute of British Architects from 1917 to 1919.
