• Monarch of the Glen: In Conversation
    Scottish National Gallery
    Sir Edwin Henry Landseer: The Monarch of the Glen

Christopher Baker, author and curator, talks all things 'Monarch of the Glen' with Dovecot Studios Director, Celia Joicey. 

This conversation is a chance to gain a unique perspective on how Baker curated the four walls of Dovecot's Tapestry Balcony Gallery to celebrate the cultural significance of Edwin Landseer's The Monarch of the Glen. To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Landseer’s death, Baker highlights how reproductions of The Monarch of the Glen have been used for numerous agendas, ranging from the celebratory and political, to the comic and subversive.

There will be an opportunity to ask Christopher Baker questions at the end of the session and The Monarch of the Glen book by Christoper Baker will also be available to purchase at the Dovecot shop.
