US Independence Day marked

Marlyn Glen marked US Independence Day with a display of the self-portrait of the 18th. century Americam portrait painter John Singleton Copley at the statue of Admiral Duncan outside Dundee’s  St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Copley painted Admiral Duncan receiving the Dutch surrender at the Battle of Camperdown.

Copley also painted two of the early US Presidents – John Adams and John Quincy Adams – before they sought office.

Copley’s father-in-law owned the tea that was tipped into Boston Harbour in the incident that became famous as the “Boston Tea Party”
