“Mrs. J. Young of Stirling” oil on canvas. Sir Henry Raeburn was born in Stockbridge. He was a Scottish miller’s son whose idealized aristocrats, always gentle and charming, seem to pose in perpetual twilight. He began his career as a miniaturist. In 1778, after marrying into comfortable circumstances, he visited London where he met Reynolds. Raeburn became the most important Scottish painter of his century, his career in many ways paralleling that of Reynolds. Art was a business to Raeburn, and from 9 AM to 5:30 PM it kept him regularly in his studio, where he painted a succession of three to four sitters a day. He painted directly on canvas without preliminary sketches, achieving a kind of spontaneity.O: 36 1/4 x 31 in. S: 28 1/2 x 23 in.
