 Definition A British painter and animalier and the best known and best-remembered of the Earl family of artists. Earl was highly-commissioned and highly-sought after in her day; she credited her father, George Earl, with insisting that she developed her skill by learning animal anatomy, which she believed distinguished her work.

May bear some resemblance to a 2006 WP stub I wrote.

In one of the great P.G. Wodehouse books, one about Blandings Castle, I think, one of the amorous young men pretends to be Landseer, the noted painter who did the classic "The Pig at Bay", for the dotty pig-obsessed Lord Emsworth. When he is later revealed to be an imposter, he denies it, saying that his famous painting is actually called "The Pig at Bée", a village in the Pyrennes in France, hehe....Hayford Peirce 16:33, 27 December 2007 (CST)

I just did a wha th...? 'cause you didn't sign and I didn't cotton on right away.
That's pretty funny. We should work it into the Landseer cluster somewhere. I intend to get to it...sometime...mumbles indistinctly. I'm not an art specialist, and I think I only have a def. template right now. Maybe I should at least start a stub?

A stub about Landseer? Sure. I ought to do one for P.G. Wodehouse, the "performing flea" of English literature. Maybe we could get Landseer to do a portrait of a flea...." Hayford Peirce 16:36, 27 December 2007 (CST)
