Lot Essay

The composition is derived from an etching by William Hogarth, originally produced in 1746. Both works depict Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat, a Scottish clan leader and participant in the Battle of Culloden (the last attempt by Jacobite forces to restore the House of Stuart to the British throne). As a result of his involvement, Fraser was publically beheaded; he was the last man in Britain to meet this fate.

This painting probably dates to the late 18th or early 19th century.
