A portrait miniature of Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet(1771-1832)
c. 1809 United Kingdom
Offered by Ellison Fine Art
Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet (1771–1832),as a young man
in a gold frame.
The miniature was probably taken in 1809 when Scott was visiting London. Beaumont would have been a natural choice of artist having obtained a
distinguished clientele. He painted portraits of the Royal Family and was
appointed miniature painter to the Duke of Kent and the Duke of York.
Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright, and poet, popular throughout much of the world during his time. He was the first English-language author to have a truly international career in his lifetime, with many contemporary
readers in Europe, Australia, and North America. His novels and poetry are still read, and many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. Famous titles include Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake, Waverley, The Heart of Midlothian and The Bride of Lammermoor
