Hinds' Heads by Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-73). Source: “Studies and Sketches by Sir Edwin Landseer, R.A.” (1875): 225. “Lent by his Grace the Duke of Westminster.” “The study, in chalk, of the ‘Hinds' Heads,’ belonging to the Duke of Westminster, shows wonderful truth of drawing and living expression; while the manner in which the heads are worked up exhibits very careful manipulation, and yet without any apparent effort.” (225).
