HAMILTON Gavin (b. 1748, Paris, d. 1825, Bruxelles) Nationality : Scottish

Scottish painter, archaeologist, and picture-dealer, active mainly in Italy. He settled in Rome in 1756, and was a leading member of the Neoclassical circle of Mengs and Winckelmann. His archaeological excavations near Rome resulted in many important additions to contemporary collections, and his interest in antiquity exerted a decisive influence on the young Canova. He was to know and encourage almost all the British artists who worked in Rome during the second half of the 18th century. Henry Fuseli, who was not an uncritical admirer, wrote of Hamilton, 'however eminent his talents or other qualities were, they were excelled by the liberality, benevolence and humanity of his character'.
