Lord Craigie, appointed Lord Advocate in 1742 and Lord President of the Court of Sessions twelve years later, was described as a lawyer of great shrewdness, profound knowledge and immense industry. This portrait was probably painted in Edinburgh, in a studio in the artist's father's house on Castle Hill. Allan Ramsay also painted the sitter's daughter and son-in-law.
