Portrait of Sir Robert Perry 1783-1848

Description

Seated half-length against a brown background.
Perry graduated MD from the University of Glasgow in 1808, and went on to hold medical and surgical posts in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary and the city’s Fever Hospital. He was a very active member of the medical community in Glasgow, being a founding member of the Glasgow Medical Society and a Vice-President of the Western Medical Club.

In 1836 he published a pioneering paper distinguishing typhus from typhoid fever. He also wrote the influential “Facts and Observations on the Sanitary State of Glasgow” (1844), demonstrating the correlation between disease and poverty.

Perry was President of the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons from 1843 to 1845. This portrait was received as a bequest from his son in 1918.

Portrait of Maister Peter Lowe

Description

Portrait of Maister Peter Lowe, standing half-length in robes with his hand resting on a book.
Peter Lowe was a Scottish surgeon who studied medicine and surgery at the Conferie de St Come et St Damien in Paris, and served as Surgeon in Ordinary to King Henry IV of France.

He returned to Glasgow in 1598 and, finding medical and surgical standards in the town lacking, decided to petition King James VI. The King responded by granting a Royal Charter in 1599, granting Lowe and Hamilton (and their successors) the power to examine and license physicians and surgeons in the West of Scotland.

The Charter was ratified by an Act of the Scottish Parliament in 1672, and is the founding document of the organisation known today as the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.

This is a copy of the original portrait, made in 1822.
