Thomas Landseer was a member of the famous Landseer family of artists from Great Britain. His father John Landseer was an eminent engraver and painter, and his younger brother Sir Edwin became one of the most popular painters of the 19th century; Thomas's other brother Charles, as well as his four sisters, Jane, Anna Maria, Jessica and Emma Landseer MacKenzie, were also artists. A talented engraver, Thomas collaborated with Edwin from childhood, as the younger brother preferred drawing and painting. Thomas would go on to dedicate much of his career to engraving his brother's most famous paintings. In total, Thomas copied over 125 of Edwin's works.
