P19: John, 8th Earl of Rothes (1675-1722)

By John Scougal.
Oil on canvas on panel. Oval 12 x 10 ins.
Small half length, in armour.
Inscribed:'John, 8th Earl of Rothes son of Margaret 8th Countess and 9th Earl'. Inscription incorrect, now described a 9th Earl being 9th in succession.
It is possible that since this and the next portrait are by the same artist that this is some form of study for the larger picture. (see also M18)
