Delivery & returns information
The son of an engraver and writer, Sir Edwin Landseer was something of a child prodigy. His artistic talents were recognised early on and at the age of 13 he exhibited at the Royal Academy and was made an Academician in 1831. The most popular painter of his time, his appeal rested in his portrayal of animal subjects, often parodying human behaviour. His work crossed class borders and was popular with the middle classes as well as being a favourite of Queen Victoria and the Prince Consort, both of whom he taught etching. Landseer was knighted in 1850 and elected President of the RA in 1866, although he had to decline due to failing health.
