Allan Ramsay at 300 exhibition poster
Poster to accompany Allan Ramsay at 300 shown at Scottish National Gallery from Sat 19 Oct–Sun 9 Feb 2014. A major display showcasing the gallery's collection of drawings by Allan Ramsay, marking the artist's 300th birthday.
Allan Ramsay (13 October 1713 – 10 August 1784) was a prominent Scottish portrait-painter. Among his most satisfactory productions are some of his earlier ones, such as the full-length of the duke of Argyll, and the numerous bust-portraits of Scottish gentlemen and their ladies. They are full of grace and individuality; the features show excellent draughtsmanship; and the flesh-painting is firm and sound in method, though frequently tending a little to hardness and opacity.
Delivered rolled in a poster tube and printed on a high-quality matt paper stock.
