        Sir Henry Raeburn United Kingdom, Scotland, (1756 - 1823) Portrait of Mr. Clavering oil on board Artist and title label verso, 107Q catalog. Biography from the Archives of askART: Sir Henry Raeburn was born on March 4, 1756 in Stockbridge, Scotland near Edinburgh. He was a Scottish miller's son whose idealized aristocrats, always gentle and charming, seem to pose in perpetual twilight. He began his career as a miniaturist. In 1778, after marrying into comfortable circumstances, he visited London where he met Reynolds. In 1785 he went to Italy, where he remained for two years. On his return to Edinburgh he became the most important Scottish painter of the century, his career in many ways paralleling that of Reynolds. In 1811 he was elected President of the Royal Society of Artists and in 1815, a Royal Academician. He was knighted by George IV in 1822, when the sovereign was visiting Scotland. Art was a business to this most distinguished of Scotch painters, and from 9 AM to 5:30 PM it kept him regularly in his studio, where he painted a succession of three to four sitters a day. He painted directly on canvas without preliminary sketches, achieving a kind of spontaneity. When he left his easel, it was to speculate in real estate or to play golf. Raeburn died in Edinburgh on July 8, 1823. Written and submitted by Jean Ershler Schatz, artist and researcher from Laguna Woods, California. Sources include: Masterpieces of Art, Catalogue of the New York World's Fair 1940.

II, pp. 174-175, no. 42b, as 'part replica' Footnote: George Joseph Bell was born in Edinburgh, the son of William Bell. He became advocate in 1791 and devoted himself to the study of Scottish mercantile law. In 1804, he published his Treatise on the Laws of Bankruptcy in Scotland (1804) which came to be regarded as one of the leading legal textbooks of his day. In 1822, Bell was appointed Professor of Scots Law at Edinburgh University, and in 1832 became one of the four principal clerks of sessions. He later chaired the Royal Commission for the amendment of Scottish Law which led to the Scottish Bankruptcy Act of 1839. The sitter's younger brother, Sir Charles Bell (1774-1842), the distinguished surgeon, was also painted by Raeburn. In 1805, Bell married Barbara Shaw who herself sat to Raeburn in 1810. The present painting relates to the larger, three-quarter length portrait of the sitter (126 x 100cm), painted by Raeburn in 1816, when Bell was appointed Professor of Conveyancing to the Society of Writers to the Signet. That portrait was presented to Parliament House by his son, Dr C W Bell in 1856 and was last recorded in a private collection in Washington, D. C. (see Mackie, pp. 173-174, no. 42).

        Jun. 10, 2021

        Est: £15,000 - £20,000

        SIR HENRY RAEBURN R.A. (SCOTTISH 1756-1823) THREE-QUARTER LENGTH PORTRAIT OF LADY CARNEGIE Oil on canvas (127cm x 102cm (50in x 40in)) Provenance: Sir Andrew Agnew , Bart Sir John Reid, Glasgow and thence by family descent Footnote: Exhibited: On loan to the National Gallery of Scotland, 1921-28 Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, British Art 1936, no.140 Royal Academy, London, Scottish Art, 1939 Aberdeen Art Gallery, Festival Exhibition, Paintings from North East Homes Literature: James L Caw, Catalogue of the Collection of Pictures belonging to John Reid, James Maclehose and Sons Ill p.6 Note: Lady Agnes Carnegie (1763-1860) was born in Edinburgh in 1763. Her father, Andrew Elliot, was the last Governor of New York under British rule, and when Agnes was twelve months old the Elliot family relocated to New York. When American independence was acknowledged in 1783 the Elliot family returned to Scotland, and later that same year Agnes married Sir David Carnegie, MP for Kincardineshire and deputy governor of the British Linen Company. The couple and their twelve children lived between Kinnaird Castle and their house in Gloucester Place, London. Agnes was herself a talented pastel artist. This enigmatic portrait of Lady Agnes Carnegie was made c.1810, when Raeburn was at the height of his powers. The subtle, muted palette is a signature of Raeburn’s, as is the soft, glowing illumination of the subject. Raeburn’s ability to evoke texture and light is as remarkable as his talent for capturing his sitter’s personality, evidencing his interest in Enlightenment principles of observation: he insisted that his sitter remained before him throughout the painting process. In this portrait Lady Carnegie looks towards the viewer with soft, smiling poise, and while her presence feels gentle her fine clothing and jewellery declare her status as a wealthy and influential individual. Raeburn’s mastery for descriptive brushwork is evident throughout this portrait, demonstrated by the delicate, ephemeral ruff at her throat, contrasted with the startling dimension and precision of her lace cuffs. Also of note is the light playing on the silken stripes of Lady Carnegie’s ivory headdress. Today Henry Raeburn (1756-1823) is celebrated as one of the greatest Scottish portrait painters. Son of an Edinburgh yarn-boiler, Raeburn was apprenticed in his teens to jeweller and goldsmith James Gilliland. Despite having received little training, his formidable talent as a portrait painter was soon recognised, and he quickly moved from painting miniatures to creating large oils on canvas. Under the sponsorship of Sir Joshua Reynolds, Raeburn relocated to Italy in 1785 to study the Old Masters and hone his craft. Two years later he returned to Edinburgh, taking a property on George Street. The work he produced forthwith cemented his legacy as Scotland’s finest portrait artist. This portrait comes from the collection of John Reid (1861-1933), a son of James Reid of Auchterarder, who founded the Hyde Park Locomotive Works in Glasgow. The Reid family were early collectors of Barbizon and Hague school paintings, and also owned several important Old Masters. French and Dutch paintings were well-represented in John Reid’s personal collection, and he also developed a fine selection of British paintings, including this remarkable Raeburn portrait.
