    LITERATURE:
    A. Smart, Allan Ramsay: A Complete Catalogue of his Paintings, ed. J. Ingamells, New Haven and London, 1999, no. 497, p. 186, fig. 327

    Eldest son of Archibald Campbell of Stonefield, married 1750 Lady Grace Stuart, daughter 2nd Earl of Bute; Lord of Session 1763 as Lord Stonefield.

    Lord Stonefield's assertive gaze and exquisite costume combine to make this portrait one of Ramsay's finest. Although the pose, with Stonefield's right hand on his hip and his left supported by a table, was used often by Ramsay and other contemporary portrait painters here it seems both natural and elegant.
