A Courtyard (1834) by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73). Source: “Studies and Sketches by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.” (1875): 196. “Lent by Mr. Joseph Page, Nottingham” “‘A Courtyard’ is executed with pen and ink; whether it was sketched from nature, or is only a composition, is uncertain; it has, however, all the materials, and very good materials too, for a picture of much interest. Some portions of the old building will, we think, be found in more than one of Landseer’s finished works where baronial halls are introduced.” (196). [Click on image to enlarge it.]
