Details: This poster is of Portrait of Ms. Eleanor Urquhart, by Sir Henry Raeburn. It shows a woman in white.
Sir Henry Raeburn (4 March 1756 - 8 July 1823) was a Scottish portrait painter. After two years of study in Italy he returned to Edinburgh in 1787, and began a successful career as a portrait painter. Raeburn had all the essential qualities of a popular and successful portrait painter. He was able to produce a telling and forcible likeness; his work is distinguished by powerful characterisation, stark realism, dramatic and unusual lighting effects, and swift and broad handling of the most resolute sort. Raeburn was unusual amongst many of his contemporaries, such as Reynolds, in the extent of his philosophy of painting everything directly from life.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
