article imageBonnie Prince Charlie portrait discovered in Scotland

BBC2 Culture Show will air a special at 9 p.m. GMT this evening to highlight the discovery of a "lost" portrait of Bonnie Prince Charlie painted in Edinburgh in 1745 just prior to his invasion of England. The program is being presented by Dr B Grosvenor.
Dr Bendor Grosvenor, art historian, presents the discovery of the lost portrait of Bonnie Prince Charlie this evening. It makes some reparation for his revelation that the portrait of Charles held by the Scottish National Portrait Gallery actually depicted his brother Henry. This mistakenly identified pastel portrait is printed on a number of consumer goods, such as tins of shortbread and covers or dust jackets of books.
The lost portrait was painted by Scottish artist Allan Ramsay and is part of the art collection of the Earls of Wemyss.
