About this artwork

This dramatic bronze bust, with its magnificent whiskers, suggests the exuberant dynamism of the sitter - the writer, radical politician and traveller Cunninghame Graham. He travelled extensively in Europe, North and South America and North Africa, his devotion to Latin America earning him the nickname 'The Gaucho.' In Argentina, a city was named 'Don Roberto' in his honour. He was an ardent supporter of Scottish home rule and was elected the first President of the National Party of Scotland.
