Thomas Landseer

1795 London 1880

“ Much  more  important  was  Edwin’s  brother  Thomas  Landseer …

… in the ’20s he distinguished himself by a series of 25 plates that were published 1828 under the title of ‘Monkeyana’. Technically his etchings are masterly, not less

admirable  the  intellectual  grasp  of  the  subject .

With much humor and sharp observation he transfers the plain life of his time to the monkey’s life. His sarcasm is biting, almost vicious. ”

(Rümann, Das Illustrierte Buch des 19. Jhdts., Leipsic 1930, pp. 99 ff.)
