William Bell Scott

16½ x 16½ in. (42 x 42 cm.)
Artist or Maker: Alice Boyd (1825-1897), after Alexander Munro
Provenance: Penkill Castle until 1992.
Notes: Alice Boyd painted this copy of a sculpted portrait of William Bell Scott by Alexander Munro (1825-1871) in bronze low-relief (exhibited at the RA, in 1854, no.1531). The relief remained at Penkill during Scott's lifetime, and when he died in 1890 Alice put it on his tomb in Old Dailly churchyard after making the present copy. It must be one of her last works, as she painted very little after the artist's death.
