About the Item

Half Length Portrait of Mr. Robertson Sir. Henry Raeburn ( Scottish 1756 - 1823 ) Half Length Portrait of Mr. Robertson 29x 24 Purchased, J Leger & Son, 13 Old Bond Street, London, July 1947 Collection of Alexander Reid Lyon and Turnbull, Edinburgh, Scotland, Jordanstone House Sale Illustrated in J L Caw, "The Portraits of Reaburn” 1909 Mentioned in James Greig's Raeburn, 1911 Condition is very good. Cleaned and relined. Provenance is perfect. Purchased from Lyon and Turnbull in 2004 paid $37,000 with shipping This work looks stunningly elegant in person with a beautiful period girl frame. I am including a few screenshots. One screenshot is of a painting that is somewhat like Mr. Robertson but it's hanging in the Frick Collection in New York. It's a portrait of a male sitting in a double-breasted black coat looking at the viewer and has the same top lighting and greenish-gray background. Art History thrives on comparisons.
