Dear pipers,

I just bought this little oil painting of a Northumbrian piper: ... q12IYvJxmP

It seems to represent a real (rather than a fantasy) person, and the pipes are painted in beautiful detail. There is the sea and a church visible in the background. I estimate the painting to date from the mid-19th century.
I would be very grateful for any information on the identity of the sitter, details about the instrument, or the location that the portrait is set in.

Many thanks in advance for any helpful tips,
