“A Young Ass” , drawn by Weir in 1860, and engraved by John Greenaway, is one of the many illustrations by Harrison Weir for the book “The Poetry of Nature”, which was published in 1861. This book was complied and edited by Weir, a poem by him also features in it, and all the illustrations for it, are by him. It was a project of which he was extremely proud and in the ensuing years, he gifted many copies of the book to various friends and fellow artists and authors. We currently have three such copies in our collection, all which contain autograph letters by Weir to various personages. This image is currently available in both A4 and A3 sizing options.
