Edwin Landseer

Sir Edwin Landseer

1802 (London) – 1873 (London)

Landseer studied under Fuseli and Haydon. Dickens and Thackeray were among his friends. His first visit to Scott (who was unfortunately away) led to his chance discovery of the Highlands; on a later visit, according to Scott, he “drew every animal in the house” (as well as Scott himself). Faraday was a correspondent.
