    LITERATURE: Ormond, R, The Monarch of the Glen, Landseer in the Highlands, (Edinburgh 2005), p88, illus. pl. 102.
    Ormond states that this work relates to the portrait of the Duke of Sutherland's children in Dunrobin castle.
    Landseer first visited Scotland in 1824, and produced many plein air studies inspired by the topography and atmospheric effects. One of Queen Victoria's favourite artists, he was largely responsible, with Scott and McCulloch, for creating the romanticised image of the Highlands which captured the world's imagination in the later 19th C.
