CHRISTOPHER BAKER Monarch of the Glen
The Monarch of the Glen by Sir Edwin Landseer is one of the most celebrated paintings of the nineteenth century. Christopher Baker’s book explores the fascinating and compli-cated history of this iconic painting, and contributes to the debates it continues to stimu-late – see the extensive recent press coverage around the painting’s acquisition for the nation by the National Galleries of Scotland. Publication of the book will coincide with the painting’s tour to four Scottish venues in 2018 (Inverness, Perth, Paisley and Kirkcud-bright).
