CARL HAAG (1820-1915)

John Mackenzie with a dead stag on a pony

dated 1853

Watercolour with touches of bodycolour and scraping out | 35.2 x 50.4 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 920750

This naturalistic study, in which the gillie John Mackenzie appears to meet our eyes, is for a large watercolour which Victoria ordered as a present for Albert, showing him returning to Balmoral after a day’s shooting. The textured paper and broad brushstrokes Haag used contribute to the tactile depiction of the coats of the pony and the stag.
