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.
