A small man stands in the middle ground on a frozen pond and ice fishes with a large castle in the background surrounded by a winter landscape. This drawing is twelve of sixteen images created by Reid for a portfolio book about the River Tweed with text by John Veitch, PhD. The images were later reproduced by Amand-Durand, a famous French engraver. Framed: 19 3/4" x 16 3/8", Sight: 9 1/2" x 7".
In the foreground a dark raven sits on a skiny branch while two large white swans float on a calm pool in the middle ground. Shrubs and other water plant life surround the scene. Sight: 7" x 9". http://www.heatons-of-tisbury.co.uk/sporting.htm
A black and white young woman standing on the coastline looks at the sea with a rolled up canvas on her shoulder. She's wearing a small cap, clogs, and a full-body apron and leans against large rocks with a bucket at her feet. http://www.rehs.com/Charles_Sprague_Pearce_Bio.html
A large black and white boar prowls on the left hand side of the composition while a small fox sits coyly nearby looking at the boar. A large tree dominates the center of the scene. Sight: 7" x 9". http://www.heatons-of-tisbury.co.uk/sporting.htm
