Edwin Landseer's Falcon Portraits

Sir Edwin Henry Landseer (1802 – 1873) is most famous in the dog world for the breed named after him (a black and white-coated Newfoundland dog), and for his numerous portraits of dogs, but he also painted horses, deer, and at least two falcons, and he sculpted the four bronze lions at the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square.
