Robert Scott Lauder

1803-1869 Scotland/Romanticism


Brief Biography-Robert Scott Lauder was born at Silvermills, Edinburgh, in 1803. The Edinburgh Trustee's Academy, now the College of Art, admitted him when he was fifteen, after which he spent some time in London. Then, in 1830, the Royal Scottish Academy elected him as a member, and he got married to Isabella Ramsay Thomson. They visited Germany and Italy, where he studied in four cities before exhibiting at the Royal Academy in London. In 1849 Lauder retired to Edinburgh, where he ceased working in 1861 due to a stroke, and he died in 1869. He was primarily a historical painter, and his younger brother James Eckford was also a painter of historical works and portraiture. James also studied with Robert in Italy for four years.
