Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    According to the archive of Flora MacDonald images in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, this portrait had been the property of Joseph Kent Richardson RSW, Edinburgh artist and dealer
    Private collection, Scotland

    Another version of this picture is reproduced in the SNPG's 'Flora MacDonald' archive.

    Flora MacDonald (1722-1790) was the Uist-born Jacobite heroine who helped Bonnie Prince Charlie escape to the Isle of Skye after Culloden, disguised as her maidservant. She was imprisoned in London until the following year, 1747, when she was released whereupon she became something of a celebrity. The rose and tartan bow are typical motifs in the few extant portraits of Flora.
