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.
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.
