  • William Crabb painter XIX century

    Hi,
    I'm a new member, writing from Poland, so pls forgive me my English. I've been looking for info about William Crabb, Scotch painter, born in Laurencekirk in 1811. I bought his picture, a portrait of a man painted in 1857? or 1859? (the last number is somewhat fuzzy). I would like to discover who is the portrayed man. He is a gentelman with sideburns, similar to that on portrait in TV clip "Sing" by Travis.
    Could someone help me in my private investigation? Perhaps I have a portrait of somebody's great-great -grandpa?

        The review seems to say he isn't a popular artist - it may well be that info regarding him is difficult to come by!

        You could always try contacting the National Gallery in Edinburgh.

              Did you ever find out who was in this painting by William Crabb? I have just found out he painted one of my ancestors.
