Rest by the Way

Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73)

“Lent by Mr. Arthur Lewis, Campden Hill.”

“Of all the pictures by Landseer, finished and unfinished, including his sketches, we never remember to have seen anything at all like that engraved here under the title of 'Rest by the Way.’ It is so singular a scene that one can scarcely suppose it to be merely imaginative, but rather that the artist must have seen something that suggested it.“ [Continued below]
