Landseer’s The Monarch Of The Glen

(Wednesday) (Sunday)

One of the world’s best known animal paintings, Edwin Landseer’s 'The Monarch of the Glen', returns to the Gallery for the first time since 1851

The large painting of a stag is the centrepiece of an exhibition, which includes other paintings and drawings by Landseer of Highland scenes, showing how he developed his distinctive approach to the representation of the stag as hero.

A representation of the painting made in 1966 by former Associate Artist Sir Peter Blake also provides a living artist’s response, highlighting 'The Monarch of the Glen’s' enduring appeal.
