James Ferguson, circa 1740 Mrs. John Withers Indian ink on card, in original turned wood frame.

Apart from learning to read Fergusson had no education. He worked for a farmer and discovered that he had an aptitude for maths, so studied the stars whilst looking after sheep. He showed talent for drawing and was sent by friends to study in Edinburgh where he drew miniatures portraits in Indian ink . He died in London in 1776.
