The Monarch of the Glen is one of the most famous British pictures of the 19th century; for many people it encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland’s highlands and wildlife. Here Landseer depicts a monumental and precisely defined ‘royal’ or twelve-point stag – a reference to the number of points on its antlers. Many of his paintings show interactions between humans and animals, but in this, his most well-known work, a single emblematic creature is viewed in a moment of exhilaration.

Sir Edwin Landseer (1802 - 1873) displayed his remarkable artistic skills at a very early age; when he was only twelve one of his paintings was exhibited at the Royal Academy. He excelled at painting animals, often bringing great drama, animation, and wit to his portrayals. He was Queen Victoria's favourite artist and was honoured with a knighthood in 1850.
