The Duck Pond by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73). Source: “Studies and Sketches by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.” (1875): 163. “Lent by Mr.Frederick A. Millbank, Esq., M.P.” “‘The Duck Pond’ is a novelty from the hand of Landseer; it is a pencil sketch, one of those kindly lent to us by Mr. F. A. Milbank, M.P. The drake and the three ducks are rather elaborately drawn, and perfectly true to nature: the goose is more sketchy, but is equally truthful” (162-63). [Click on image to enlarge it.]
