Here is the MFC function call:

void CTest2Ctrl::SetP1(LPPICTUREDISP newValue)
{
// inside of here how do I display the picture pointed
// to by 'newValue', which is a pointer to an IPictureDisp
// object.
}

The IPictureDisp interface is an automation interface (meaning it is derived from IDispatch). The easiest thing to do since you are using MFC is

CPictureHolder foo;
foo.SetPictureDispatch(newValue);
foo.Render(dc, rcRender, rcBounds);

If you are not familiar with CPictureHolder::Render(), look it up in the MFC documentation.
