Sir Edwin Landseer RA was the foremost animal painter of this day and Queen Victoria's favourite, who became well known to the public for the portrait of a majestic stag, The Monarch of the Glen and the bronze lions at the foot of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square. But another more private side to Landseer's creative genius which deserves greater recognition is revealed in his 'off-duty' drawings in pen and wash, sketched when he stayed in the homes of his aristocratic patrons, or as a member of their group of family and friends on extended holidays in the Highlands of Scotland, where he took part in their pastimes and sporting activities. Contains over 150 colour images.
