“The Donkey”. A full page, colour book plate image from “Harrison Weir’s Pictures of Animals” published in 1877 by The Religious Tract Society, London. A sensitive portrayal of a donkey, Harrison often drew donkeys and clearly had an affinity with them. He recorded prize winners from the Crystal Palace Shows, rendered touching landscapes in which they often featured or were the main subject matter. An original pencil drawing of a donkey done by him in 1899 at the age of 75, is now part of our collection. This image is currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
