Thomas Landseer (1793/94 - 1880) was a draughtsman, engraver and painter. He is best-known for his engravings and etchings of paintings by his youngest brother Edwin Landseer. Born in London, the eldest of fourteen children, Landseer was taught artistic techniques by his father, the engraver John Landseer. He then studied under the painter Benjamin Robert Haydon. He began etching aged fourteen, copying his brother's drawings; and continued to make etched copies of Edwin's works in later life. He produced satirical etchings for Monkeyana, or, Men in Miniature (1827), and dedicated his Characteristic Sketches of Animals (1832) to the Zoological Society. He also produced illustrations for Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Devil's Walk (1831). He exhibited paintings at the British Institution and the Royal Academy, and was elected an Associate of the latter in 1867.

Edwin Landseer (1802 - 1873) was a painter of sentimental animals, lithographer, etcher and occasional sculptor, illustrator, and playing-card maker. He was born in London and was the son of the line engraver John Landseer. He entered the RA School in 1816 and exhibited at the RA throughout his life.
