Art on Friday; Henry Raeburn

Sir Henry Raeburn self portrait

I've bought a book about the Scottish painter Henry Raeburn the other day called : 'The Makers of British Art'.
Unfortunatelly it's pictures are in black and white but still a lovely book about Sir Henry Raeburn's works and life.

Here a few of his wonderful portraits ;

Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch  or
