Neil Gow,
Neil Gow, The Famous Musician of Scotland.
Painted by Sir Henry Raeburn. Schenck & Ghemar, Lithographers, Edinburgh. L. Ghemar Delt. 1849.
Published by G. Crawford 6, South St. Andrew Street, Edinburgh. [c.1850.]
Tinted lithograph heightened in white, on india paper. Image 370 x 280mm, 14½ x 11". Minor tears in outer edges, surface dust on title area and margins.
Fine portrait of Niel Gow (1727 - 1807), Scottish violinist and composer, sitting holding his violin to his chin, dressed in tartan breeches. In the autumn of 1787 Burns met him at Dunkeld, and the poet describes him as "a short, stout-built, honest Highland figure, with his greyish hair shed on his honest social brow; an interesting face, marking strong sense, kind open-heartedness, mixed with unmistrusting simplicity". As a player of Scotch dance music, especially of reels and strathspeys, Gow was in his time without superior or rival. He recieved an annuity from the Duke and Duchess of Atholl and regularly played at Dunkeld House and Blair Atholl. He composed a large number of melodies, nearly a hundred of which are included in the volumes published by his son Nathaniel. Four portraits of Gow were painted by Sir Henry Raeburn (1756 - 1823).

[Sir Henry Raeburn.]
Ipse pinx WN ft 1818.
Fine etching on india, platemark 270 x 225mm (10½ x 9"), very large margins. Fine proof impression, before 'No 3' added upper right.
Engraving from Sir Henry Raeburn's 1815 self-portrait in the Scottish National Gallery. Raeburn's career had deteriorated in the early years of the 19th century, and he hoped to improve his fortunes by moving from his native Scotland to London in 1810. He was elected as a full member of the Royal Academy in 1815 and sent in the self-portrait as his diploma picture, not knowing that portraits of members could not be accepted. As Duncan Thomson (DNB) writes: 'great effort had gone into the making of this Olympian image, for its high seriousness was how he [Raeburn] wished to be perceived in London. His disappointment must have been extreme. It was eventually replaced by the sentimental 'Boy with Rabbit', a portrait of his stepgrandson Henry Raeburn Inglis'. Etching by William Nicholson (1781-1844), portrait painter and etcher. In 1818 Nicholson began to publish a series entitled 'Portraits of distinguished living characters of Scotland, drawn and etched by William Nicholson from his portraits and those by other painters', which included the lettered state of this print.
For another print in Nicholson's series see ref. 16377.
