Item description for My Highest Pleasures: William Hunter's Art Collection (The Huntarian Museum, Glasgow) by Peter Black, Mungo Campbell, Anne Dulau & Helen Mccormack...

William Hunter (1718-83) was an outstanding figure of his time, not only as a surgeon and doctor who successfully delivered six royal children to George III and Queen Charlotte, but also as professor of anatomy at the Royal Academy of Arts. His involvement in the arts - as a result of which he became intimate with Hogarth, Ramsay, Stubbs, and Reynolds - stemmed from his pursuit of medical illustrations. He founded the first public museum in Scotland, the present Hunterian Museum in Glasgow, and bequeathed to it his remarkable collection of paintings, prints, drawings, coins, classical vases, medals, books, and curiosities.

Celebrating the 250th anniversary of the opening of the Hunterian Museum, this book provides a full study both of this many-faceted surgeon/connoisseur and of his collection of art, which contains a number of outstanding masterpieces including a Rembrandt, and provides a revealing snapshot of this crucial transitional period in British art.
