Proud Scottish Enlightenment Selfie! David Martin (1737-1797), 1760, was a British painter and engraver. Born in Fife, he studied in London and Italy, before gaining a reputation as a portrait painter. Martin painted over 300 portraits in his lifetime. One of the earliest independent ones is the 1767 one of Benjamin Franklin (now in the White House, Washington, DC). His most influential works depict Scottish Enlightenment figures like the chemist Joseph Black and the philosopher David Hume.
