Reverend Walker reusable canvas tote bag

Reverend Walker reusable canvas tote bag

£12.99

Canvas re-usable tote bag featuring the iconic artwork Reverend Robert Walker (1755 - 1808) Skating on Duddingston Loch, by Sir Henry Raeburn, from the National Galleries of Scotland Collection This sturdy cotton canvas bag has the image printed in both sides and long handles.

This serene skater is thought to be the Reverend Robert Walker, a member of the Edinburgh Skating Society and minister of the Canongate Kirk. The club, which was the oldest of its kind in Britain, usually skating on frozen lochs (lakes). Walker looks effortless, but this pose would have been recognised by fellow skaters as a difficult and sophisticated manoeuvre. This painting of the Reverend, showing a figure in action, is quite unlike other known portraits by Sir Henry Raeburn
