Print from calotype negative by Hill and Adamson. David Octavius Hill (1802-1870), a Scottish landscape painter, joined up with Robert Adamson (1821-1848) in 1843, when he was asked to do a large painting to commemorate the formation of the Free Church of Scotland. Hill had to take photographic records of the 474 ministers, so enlisted the help of Adamson who became Hill's technical asistant. Their succesful partnership lasted four and a half years, during which time they became best known for their portraiture.
