John Kay (1742-1826) was a self-taught artist and engraver who had come to Edinburgh as a young man to work as a barber and hairdresser. However in 1784 he abandoned his craft and, for the next 38 years, he sketched portraits of his contemporaries.

Some 329 of his engravings, with accompanying notes, were published posthumously by his friend Hugh Paton as ‘Kay’s Portraits’ in 1837. Eric Melvin’s talk considers the unique contribution made by Kay to our knowledge of Edinburgh’s ‘Golden Age’.
