The portrait above (by an unknown artist) is known as the Muir portrait after the family who once owned it. Probably it was painted posthumously, based on a medallion by James Tassie. It is now at the Scottish National Gallery, where given there by J H Romanes, in 1945 (source: wiki).

Says Mario Vargas Llosa, "the Sottish economist has explained better than anyone else why some countries go forward while others are losing the pace" (El economista escocés ha explicado mejor que nadie por qué ciertos países progresan y otros retroceden y cuál es la auténtica frontera entre la civilización y la barbarie). An elegant essay published in El País

(Mario Vargas Llosa)
