Creative Cauldron - Sir Henry RaeburnMonday, May 14, 2012
|William Robertson, Lord Robertson|
|Colonel Alastair Ranaldson Macdonell of Glengarry|
|Commander Hugh Clapperton|
A bad business investment bankrupted him but did not stop him. He painted his way out of debt, recovered his fortune and ended up being knighted.
|Elizabeth Campbell Marchesa di Spineto|
|Miss Eleanor Urquhart|
However, I do enjoy Raeburn's painting. He only painted from life, and I think it shows through in the way each sitter has a personality and a believably real pose.
|Mrs R. Scott Moncrieff|
|Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch|
|Sir Walter Scott|
