|Title||Monarch Of The Glen|

Monarch of the Glen is a painting of a red deer stag, completed in 1851. It was commissioned as part of a series of three panels to hang in the Palace of Westminster in London.
The stag has 12 points on his antlers which in deer terminology makes him a royal stag, but not a monarch stag for which 16 points are needed. The painting was acquired by companies in Scotland to use in advertising and in 2017, became the property of the National Galleries of Scotland and it is one of the most iconic paintings of the 19th century throughout the World.
The print is hand numbered and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Master Printer and bearing a matching number to the print.
