The German artist Carl Haag came to Balmoral in autumn 1853 at Victoria and Albert’s request, after they had received a watercolour by him as a Christmas gift from relatives. He was given a studio, which his patrons visited to see his work in progress, and initially used Victoria’s painting materials as his went missing on the train north to Scotland. Haag accompanied the royal party to watch fishermen in action on 9 September.
