The Monarch of the Glen @ Perth Museum & Gallery

The Monarch of the Glen @ Perth Museum & Gallery

The Monarch of the Glen painting will be at Perth Museum and Art Gallery from the 25th November 2017 – 13th January 2018

The Monarch of the Glen is one of the most famous British pictures of the nineteenth century: for many people it encapsulates the grandeur and majesty of Scotland’s highlands and wildlife. Painted by Edwin Landseer, it depicts a monumental and precisely defined ‘royal’ or twelve point stag – a reference to the number of points on its antlers. Many of Landseer’s paintings show interactions between humans and animals, but in this, his most well-known work, a single emblematic creature is viewed in a moment of exhilaration. The Monarch of the Glen became widely admired in nineteenth century, when it was reproduced in prints, and achieved even greater renown in the twentieth century when it was employed as a marketing image for various products, so endowing it with global recognition.

The iconic painting was acquired for the nation in March 2017 after a high-profile fundraising campaign. Between October 2017 and May 2018 it will go on show in Inverness, Perth, Paisley and Kirkcudbright. Organised by the National Galleries of Scotland, with support from Scottish Government, the Heritage Lottery Fund, and the Art Fund.
