EDITORS COMMENTS
This portrait captures the essence of David Steuart Erskine, the 11th Earl of Buchan, in all his regal splendor. Painted by Alexander Runciman in 1784, this oil on canvas print showcases Buchan's commanding presence and intellectual prowess. Buchan was not only a nobleman but also a prominent Antiquary who played a significant role in Scotland's cultural landscape. In fact, he founded the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland in Edinburgh in 1780, demonstrating his commitment to preserving and celebrating Scottish heritage. The portrait itself was gifted to the Literary & Antiquarian Society of Perth by Buchan early in 1785, just months after its founding. This act exemplifies his deep interest and support for this society that shared his passion for literature and history. In the painting, Buchan is depicted with an air of authority as he gazes confidently into the distance. His attire reflects the fashion trends of the time - elegant clothing befitting a man of high status during the eighteenth century. This artwork serves as both a historical record and a testament to Buchan's contributions to Scottish culture. It stands proudly within Perth Museum & Art Gallery as an enduring symbol of one man's dedication to knowledge and preservation.
