Editorial: Alexander Hill, Printseller and Colourman to the Scottish Academy of Painting, &c., 50 Princes Street, Edinburgh, Edinburgh
Año de publicación: 1814
Ilustrador: Henry Raeburn
A particularly fine, large and handsome full length mezzotint portrait of General Sir David Baird, the hero of the Battle of Seringapatam , shown with right arm raised, in full uniform, wearing the large gold medal for Curunna, beside his horse. The image size is 15ins x 23.5ins not including the title and the Baird coat of arms which are printed immediately below the portrait but using a separate plate. The margins are uncut and the print is in an excellent state, never having been framed. The paper margins of this example are greater than those of the example recorded on the website of the National Portrait Gallery. Baird is one of the few people to have been painted full length by Raeburn. The somewhat unusaul pose is perhaps accounted for by distracting the viewer's gaze from the empty left sleeve (the General had lost his left arm at the Battle of Corunna). Size: 20ins x 33ins Overall. N° de ref. de la librería 006588
