Prince George of Cambridge, Arabian stallion Selim, his Newfoundland dog Nelson, his King Charles spaniel Flora, and his  peregrine falcons, seen here hooded and ready to be p through their paces. The Prince aged fifteen or sixteen at the time of this painting, was a first cousin of Queen Victoria. The prince's pony, dogs, and falcons seem to await his arrival from the door on the left, presumably to go out hawking in the royal park at Windsor; through the door is a distant view of Windsor Castle. Landseer painted black-and-white Newfoundland dogs like Prince George's so ably and often that the variety became known as the "Landseer," a name still in common use.
