    Published to accompany an exhibition at The Hunterian Gallery in Glasgow, this volume celebrates the art and intellectual achievements of the Scottish artist Allan Ramsay (1713-1784), one of the most accomplished portrait painters of the European Enlightenment. Illustrated by 80 reproductions, including works by Ramsay's contemporaries, five essays discuss the trajectory of the artist's career, his intellectual engagement with the Enlightenment and his unusual technique of red underpainting in portraiture.
