Scott by Raeburn

Here's a portrait I like of the Scottish poet and novelist Sir Walter Scott:

Sir Walter Scott by Sir Henry Raeburn
It was painted by Sir Henry Raeburn, a man who was orphaned as a child and supported by his brother. Although self-taught, he became a celebrated artist of his time.

  1. I love this portrait as well. :) It's well done, and Sir Walter Scott is really handsome!

    I have his a bit but didn't make it through...he's very rambly like me so it makes me feel good :)
