Scottish judge, knighted in 1823, he was also a founder of the Highland Society and the Bannatyne Club. A literary man, in earlier years Bannatyne had contributed articles to the Edinburgh Mirror and Lounger journals. Given the prominence given to Bannatyne’s official robes, this portrait may be connected to his promotion the Bench as Lord Bannatyne in 1799.
