Biography


Sir Henry Raeburn is a Scottish portrait painter. In spite of his status, Raeburnís career is surprisingly little documented. He was born in 1756, in Edinburgh, was orphaned, educated at Heriotís Hospital in Edinburgh, and brought up under the general supervision of his elder brother William. In 1772, he was apprenticed to James Gilliland, an Edinburgh goldsmith; while he was still an apprentice he began to paint miniatures, first in watercolors, then in oils.
