He travelled to Europe to complete his artistic training, spending three years in Rome, before visiting Turkey.

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a mid-19th century engraving of the renowned Scottish painter, William Aikman. Born in 1682, Aikman initially pursued law studies at the University of Edinburgh but ultimately followed his true passion for art. By 1703, he had already established himself as a professional portrait artist in Edinburgh. Seeking to refine his skills further, Aikman embarked on an artistic journey across Europe. Spending three years in Rome and even venturing into Turkey, he absorbed diverse influences that would shape his distinctive style. In 1712, upon returning to Scotland, Aikman found patronage from John Campbell, the 2nd Duke of Argyll. Encouraged by his influential supporter, Aikman relocated to London where he flourished as a highly esteemed portrait painter. The engraving captures not only the essence of this talented artist but also reflects the elegance and sophistication prevalent during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Britain. With meticulous attention to detail and masterful use of monochrome tones, S Freeman skillfully brings forth Aikman's likeness while highlighting his profession as a portrait painter. This remarkable print serves as a testament to William Aikman's enduring legacy within Scottish art history. It transports us back in time to an era when portraiture was revered as both an art form and a means for capturing the essence of royalty and aristocracy alike.
