The painting depicts the death of John Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount Dundee, possibly in a room at Urrard House after having been mortally wounded at the Battle of Killiecrankie. The fatally wounded man's armour lies by his bed, his gaze is fixed on a soldier on the right who holds the Scottish standard. In reality the general consensus is that Claverhouse died on the battlefield at Killiecrankie so this is an artistic interpretation of his death based on John Grant's historical fiction 'The Scottish Cavalier'.
