About this artwork

In 1766 John Wauchope married Anne Erskine, the eldest daughter of John Erskine, 14th Laird of Dun. Raeburn also painted Anne (NG 2150) and a portrait of their eldest son James (NG 2148). This portrait of John was exhibited in the Raeburn Exhibition in Edinburgh in 1876 (catalogue number 19) and was lent by Sir John Don-Wauchope.
