In celebration of Robert Burns day today, it is particularly appropriate that the MUSA Collections Centre Object of the Month is an engraving of the famous poet! The engraving is by John Burnet (1784-1868) and is entitled, Robert Burns in His Cottage Composing ‘The Cottar’s Saturday Night’. It is based on an original work by the artist, William Allan. It has recently been re-framed and we think it looks great!
You can see this work on display at MUSA: Museum of the University of St Andrews from 3rd February 2011. We would be delighted to hear your comments and responses to the MUSA Collections Centre Object of the Month!
