About

Simon Fraser, 11th Lord Lovat (c.1667-1747), nicknamed 'the Fox', was a Scottish Jacobite and Chief of Clan Fraser of Lovat, known for his feuding and changes of allegiance. Lovat was among the Highlanders defeated at the Battle of Culloden and convicted of treason against the Crown, following which he was sentenced to death and subsequently beheaded. Brought to London for trial, one of his stops was at St Albans, where he was sketched by William Hogarth. Hogarth shows him here seated in a large, carved armchair, counting off on his fingers the Highland chieftains whom he thought would fight against the Hanoverian dynasty occupying the British throne. This fine engraving printed on thin laid paper dates from before 1822, as The Heath edition was the last to print directly from Hogarth's original engraved plates. After Hogarth's death in 1747, his original prints were passed to his wife, Jane. Many of his engravings were published by Jane in 1775. Inscribed in the plate 'Drawn from the life and etch'd in aquafortis by Will Hogarth. Published according to Act of Parliament August 25th 1746'. On laid.
