LANDSEER, Sir Edwin Henry (1802-1873). Animal-painter.
Autograph Letter Signed to [Clarkson] Stanfield (1793-1867, painter), 1 page 8vo, no place, 16 April 1860. 'I sincerely hope you will add some good name to the enclosed lists'.

Landseer's later years were marred by recurrences of physical and mental ill health following his nervous breakdown in 1840 but he continued to inspire loyalty and affection among his friends. In 1860 he completed 'Flood in the Highlands', a work he had begun many years earlier.
