The obscure Scottish portrait painter Jeremiah Davison worked in London, as well as Scotland. He had a large number of clients in Edinburgh. Some of his paintings are known from engravings. There is a full-length standing portrait of James, Duke of Atholl, dated 1737. Bénézit believes that Sir Peter Lely's style was Davison's major source. According to Stanley Cursiter, his best known work is the portrait of Lord President Duncan Forbes of Culloden. In addition, a Portrait of Christiana Lady Moray (Greenwich) and Elizabeth MacDonald of Largie (Gallery of Merchants, Edinburgh) are known works by Davison.
