          Artist details

          Ramsay was born in Edinburgh. His father, also Allan Ramsay, was an important Scottish poet from whom the younger Ramsay inherited a tradition of strong nationalistic pride. Ramsay Junior was instrumental in formulating a native Scottish style of painting, as his father had done for poetry. After a lucrative career in Italy (mostly in Rome), Ramsay settled in London, but remained active in Edinburgh. During his prime period he had a virtual monopoly on court painting.
