The Somniloquists were created in the Reading Room of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh. They are executed in Conté chalk on Black Seawhite Paper.

The drawings were exhibited in 2017 and 2018

The Reading Room hosts the Death Casts of a number of famous and anonymous individuals. The name Somniloquists is wholly appropriate, as they can certainly be understood as ‘speaking’ to us even now, centuries after their deaths.
