after the painting by
Sir Edward Landseer
Thomas Landseer; 1793-1880. Eminent Printmaker and Writer, studied under Benjamin Robert Haydon, Landseer produced many original etchings beyond his work for his brother. His father John Landseer was an engraver and painter, and his younger brother Sir Edwin became one of the most popular painters of the 19th century. A talented engraver, Thomas worked with Edwin from childhood, as the younger brother preferred drawing and painting. Thomas dedicated most of his career to engraving his brother's famous paintings.
This etching has retained its excellent colouring, bright and unfaded, in coloured inks with very fine detail and intaglio ink lines, the image measuring approximately 45 cms. x 32 cms. (18 x 13 ins.) within a strong platemark and impression, on a medium wove paper sheet measuring 63 cms. x 51 cms. (25 x 20 ins.)
