'Monarch of the Glen' on tour (ctd.)

October 9 2017

Video: National Gallery of Scotland

There's much excitement up here in Scotland about a nationwide tour of Ladnseer's 'Monarch of the Glen', which was recently acquired by the National Gallery of Scotland. Inevitably, the first stop on the tour (Inverness) sees the picture hung beside a 'contemporary response' (below). A far more interesting 'response' to the picture is I think explained in the video above by Sir Peter Blake, who made a copy of the picture for Sir Paul Macartney.
