Description

Oil painting by Angelica Kauffman of Sir James Hall (1761-1832), 4th Baronet of Dunglas. Hall discovered that by heating calcium carbonate under presure a rock substance similar to marble is formed. His work on the creation of rocks also proved that igneous rocks in Scotland had been produced under heat.
