Frozen Out, (1866) by the Victorian English Landscapes and genre painter, George Dunlop Leslie.
Leslie came from a family of artists: his father was notable genre painter Charles Robert Leslie and along with fellow artist James Hayllar, they painted Queen Victoria for her Golden Jubilee in 1887.
Leslie was also an author and had several books published. Our river (1888), Letters to Marco (1893) and Riverside letters (1896) were all illustrated by him in black and white, and based on personal observations of life and nature in his local area. He also wrote a history of the early years of the Royal Academy – ‘The inner life of the Royal Academy.’
