Description
Christmas cards reproducing Scottish painter Sir Henry Raeburn’s (1756-1823) elegant winter portrait of a skater on Duddingston Loch, near Edinburgh. Known as ‘The Skating Minister’, c.1795, the painting is thought to be a portrait of the Reverend Robert Walker (1755-1808); Walker was minister of Canongate Kirk in Edinburgh’s Old Town and was also a member of the Edinburgh Skating Society, suggesting the gliding posture captured by Raeburn. The painting is part of the collection of the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh.

I have been totally in love with this painting by Raeburn since an autumn holiday in Edinburgh where I saw it in the Scottish Royal Academy. The Minister looks so tranquil and calm, enjoying respite from his hectic career. I'm sure my dearest friends will want to know more about this artist.
