Description

Print from a calotype negative by Hill and Adamson. John Henning is posing in this picture as Edie Ochiltree, a beggar character in Sir Walter Scott's 'The Antiquary' (1816). David Octavius Hill (1802-1870) and Robert Adamson (1821-1848) worked together from 1843 to 1848. They were best known for their portraiture, in which they often made use of dramatic lighting. They took portraits of many of Scotland's leading figures of the day, such as this picture of John Henning, a sculptor.
