Yevgeny Yevgenyevich Lansere (1875-1946) was a Russian artist, born near St. Petersburg into a family of prominent Russian artists, architects, and composers. In addition to his work in painting and sculpture, Lansere illustrated the Caucasian novellas of Leo Tolstoy, and his later interest in Asian art was sparked by trips he took to Japan and Turkey in the 1920s.

This small bronze statue of a sheep was listed in the inventory of the Deanery taken in 1917, along with numerous other small animal figurines. It stood with other bronzes first in the entrance hall and later in the Deanery’s large sitting room, the Dorothy Vernon Room.
