Henry Raeburn's painting of his friend the Reverend Robert Walker skating on a frozen loch is widely known and loved. This book tells the story behind the painting, and in so doing illuminates both an episode in Scottish history and an aspect of the history of Scottish painting. It explores the relationship between artist and subject, the times they lived in and the reasons why this intimate portrait has acquired such iconic status.
