Edwin Landseer – part 5

1860s Edwin Landseer

National Portrait Gallery, London

Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) was an English artist best known for his animal paintings and sculptures. Landseer’s popularity in Victorian Britain was considerable, and his reputation as an animal painter was unrivalled. He is particularly associated with Scotland, which he first visited in 1824, and you will see that many of his works are of Scottish subjects. In 1858 the government commissioned Landseer to make four (now famous) bronze lions for the base of Nelson’s Column in Trafalgar Square. Edwin Landseer died in October 1873, and his death was widely marked in England. He was buried in St. Paul’s Cathedral, London.
