Single 14 x 14 cm square postcard featuring The Monarch of the Glen (c.1851) by Sir Edwin Landseer part of the National Galleries of Scotland Collection.
The Monarch of the Glen (c.1851) is an icon, a swirling storm of Victorian melodrama. There has never been a more potent, visual evocation of Scotland’s impact upon the popular imagination - it’s right up there with bagpipes, tartan and a mouthful of shortbread.
Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (7 March 1802 – 1 October 1873) was an English painter and sculptor, well known for his paintings of animals—particularly horses, dogs and stags. However, his best-known works are the lion sculptures in Trafalgar Square.
