Helme Grouse Shooting

T. Helme.

Grouse Shooting.

25.5 x 22.5 inches

An aquatint in original hand colour published by T. Helme in London circa 1870.

In this rural sporting scene, we are somewhere up in the Highlands of Scotland in August as the grouse shooting season gets underway. Two well-dressed gentlemen load their guns at the edge of the grouse moor while a servant in livery and tam o'shanter appears over the brow of the hill with a picnic and back up cartridges. In the distance, up in the mountains, a shepherd watches over his flock. The gun dogs pace around in the foreground, attempting to pick up a scent, and only the keenest observer will spot the covey of grouse concealed within the heather!
