A Painting of the Loch Ness Monster?

I found this picture in a relatively old book on Nessie. It claims to be of a sighting of the monster but the source they claim for it (Mary Evans Picture Library) has no reference to it.

Has anyone else seen this before?

  1. Okay it turns out to be a sea serpent case.

    As revealed by Dick Raynor:

    "It was seen in Loch Alsh, between Skye and the mainland, and appeared in the Strand Magazine in August 1895. The matter is discussed in Gould's The Case for the Sea Serpent,1930, pp 184 - 186."
