The Donkey-ride (1818) by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73). Source: “Studies and Sketches by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.” (1875): 100. “Lent by Henry Croxford, Esq., Brentford.” “'The Donkey Ride,' like the ‘Study of Donkeys,’ is one of Landseer's very early sketches, done at the age of thirteen; it bears his signature in a boyish handwriting; both, it may be presumed are fruits of his labours on Hampstead Heath” (100).
