John Horsburgh

Oil Painting:  William Smith

Clive Press wrote:

"I recently inherited two oil paintings by John Horsburgh on the death of my father earlier this year.  They are of my g g grandparents, William Cobb Smith of Benholm Castle and his wife Jessie Smith (Rae).

My family came originally from Montrose Scotland, and William Smith had business interests in Edinburgh. I am now retired and am living in the province of Cordoba in Spain.

The pictures are 34cm x 40cm including the gold frame; the pictures are set within a gold oval surround, and signed and dated in red "Horsburgh Edin 1874".   I am assuming they are by John Horsburgh, b1835.
