Cottage in Ettrick Hill, David Octavious  (Scottish, 1802-1870)Adamson, Robert  (Scottish, 1821-1848)

“Several Pieces Not Before Printed, with Illustrative Engravings, Chiefly from Real Scenes” These D.O. Hill engravings predated Talbot’s calotype. Hogg questioned and subverted aspects of the Scottish Enlightenment, and created a space in which the allegedly ‘marginal’ and ‘primitive’ culture of the old Scottish peasantry could speak with eloquence and power. Hogg made a distinctive Scottish contribution to European Romanticism.” – Oxford DNB
