  • Painted circa 1810.

    Louis Cauvin (1754-1825) was a Leith-born philanthropist, teacher and farmer at Duddingston. On his death his fortune founded Cauvin's Hospital, later the Dean Orphanage, which opened in 1833 in Thomas Hamilton's fine building (now Modern 2 Gallery). The 'Dean and Cauvin Trust' is one of Edinburgh's oldest charities.

    Cauvin was depicted in John Kay's etching of 1817, alongside friends Robert Kay and David Scott. It is also reported that Robert Burns and his friend, the engraver John Beugo, received French lessons in Edinburgh from M. Louis Cauvin. Burns and Cauvin had met at the Lodge Canongate Kilwinning. Cauvin was described as being
    'particularly choice of dress; he was very hospitable; and a quick discerner of character.' (James Marshall, A Winter with Robert Burns, 1846, p.97
