Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    With Richard Green Gallery, 44 Dover Street, London

    Exhibited:
    Royal Academy 1869, no.200.

    The present lot is an excellent example of Ansdell's Scottish highland paintings. A prolific exhibitor at the London academies (showing 149 works at the Royal Academy, as well as 30 at the British Institution) Ansdell was one of the most successful Sporting artists of his generation. He exhibited many Scottish subjects throughout his long career, and built a Lodge on the banks of Loch Laggan.

    Ansdell's best highland works rival that of Sir Edwin Landseer; as one critic noted in 1860, '[Ansdell's] products are among the best of their kind...if we had no Landseer, Ansdell would, unquestionably, occupy the very foremost place in this department of art' (Art Journal, 1860, p.223).
