Etching, platemark 145 x 130mm (5¾ x 5"). Repaired tear on left.
Etching after a self-portrait by Scottish artist John Brown (1749-87), miniature painter and draughtsman. Born in Edinburgh, Brown spent time in London before travelling to Rome in 1769, where his friend and fellow Scot Alexander Runciman was already well-established (Runciman's double portrait of the two men is in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery). Brown toured Italy as draughtsman to the collector and antiquary Charles Townley (1772) and became involved with Henry Fuseli and his circle. He continued to work for Townley and spent time in Florence before returning to Scotland, where his most important late commission was for a series of portrait drawings of members of the Society of Antiquaries.
