The Monarch of the Glen (c.1851) is an icon, a swirling storm of Victorian melodrama. There has never been a more potent, visual evocation of Scotland’s impact upon the popular imagination - it’s right up there with bagpipes, tartan and a mouthful of shortbread.
British painter and sculptor Sir Edwin Landseer mastered at painting animals, bringing drama and character to his pictures. He was a frequent visitor to Scotland, combining hunting expeditions with sketching trips. He was Queen Victoria's favourite artist and was honoured with a knighthood in 1850.
