This marble portrait bust (h.67cm), signed and dated 1849, is to be sold on the 17th September 2021, at a McTears Auction in Glasgow (Lot No. 1246). It is being sold as part of the collection of William Mowat-Thompson. The identification of the subject seems borne out by comparison with a photograph of Sir Hew Hamilton Dalrymple in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. Marochetti was certainly in Scotland in 1849, visiting friends he had made earlier in connection with the Glasgow Wellington commission.Signed portraits from this year include the following Scottish subjects: Robert Lamond, Catherine Mathie Lamond and Andrew Stephenson Dalglish (marble busts) and James Oswald M.P. (parian relief roundel). All of these portraits are of a forthright naturalistic type.
