RAEBURN, Sir Henry
(b. 1756, Stockbridge, d. 1823, Edinburgh)

Portrait of Anne Blair Maconochie Welwood of Garvock

Oil on canvas, 78 x 65 cm
Private collection

This portrait represents Anne Blair Maconochie Welwood, Lady Meadowbank (1784-1866), the daughter of Robert Blair, a judge and advocate from West Lothian. In 1805 she married Alexander Maconochie Welwood, second Lord Meadowbank (1777-1861), who also sat for Raeburn, in 1816. His portrait and the present work were undoubtedly treated as a pair.

The sitter here is depicted half-length, wearing a brown and white dress, with pearl earrings and necklace.
