Artist's Description

I was fascinated with Edinburgh on our visit in 2017, it is truly a city for artists! But there was a dark side to Edinburgh that is hinted at in this painting. Two serial killers in the 1800's, found murder a profitable enterprise. The city was a leading European center of anatomical study in the early 19th century, in a time when the demand for cadavers led to a shortfall in legal supply.
