THE DOGS OF ST. BERNARD. 1860

THE DOGS OF ST. BERNARD

The print is after a painting by Sir E. Landseer, R.A. The original was painted in 1820, when Landseer was only 21 years old, and was lent by him to Baxter so that he might make his drawings. Sir Edwin Landseer was the most popular artist of his time. He died in 1879. This is one of Baxter's largest prints. It is also the last he printed before his retirement in 1860. It shows two of the celebrated dogs rescuing a lost traveller, while the monks are rushing from the hospice to help the person lying in the snow.
