This portrait of Alasdair Ranaldson MacDonell (1771–1828), 15th Chief of Glengarry was painted in Rome while he was on the Grand Tour. Glengarry embodied the romanticised notions of the Highlands that prevailed throughout the nineteenth century. Considering himself to be the last true example of a traditional Highland Chief, Glengarry employed a skilled Gaelic poet and piper and travelled with a 'tail' of retainers made up of his clansmen.
