Scottish Lake Scene (1829-30) by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73). Source: “Studies and Sketches by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.” (1875): 194. “Lent by Mr. H. G. Reid, Middlesborough.” “Landseer painted numerous lakescenes, most of them on a small scale, and more as studies of backgrounds than for any other purpose. That here engraved, from a drawing in coloured chalks, is said to be Loch Laggan; it is evidently of the same character as the sketch which appears on an earlier page (97), and shows unmistakably a poetic feeling, in which solitude and quietness are the prevailing elements.” (193).[Click on image to enlarge it.]
