Famous Dog Paintings A Couple of Foxhounds

Famous Dog Paintings A Couple of Foxhounds

Famous Dog Portrait Paintings A Couple of Foxhounds was painted by George Stubbs in 1792. A Couple of Foxhounds was probably commissioned by the Reverend Thomas Vyner of north Lincolnshire. Stubbs was known to have worked for the Vyner family on his return to Lincolnshire in 1776 and again in 1792. Vyner was an avid sportsman and equestrian, and an expert on breeding hounds. He was a close friend of Charles Anderson-Pelham, later 1st Baron Yarborough, and the two often hunted together at Brocklesby, the Pelham estate. Stubbs painted Ringwood , a portrait of the leading hound in the Brocklesby pack, the same year he made this picture, and the hounds depicted in this work are probably of the same breeding.

It was Stubbs’s practice to paint the foreground animals first, and the background and sky later, painting up to and often over the outline of the figures. His increasingly sophisticated style is apparent if one compares this picture to his earlier depictions of hounds, such as the 1762 Foxhounds in a Landscape, in which he posed five dogs in a frieze-like arrangement. Whereas the dogs in the 1762 portrait, equally well-painted, are formally posed, this pair are engaged in almost human interaction. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Famous Dog portrait painting A Jack in Office

Dog Portraits High Life 1829

Dog Portraits High Life 1829

Famous dog paintings High Life 1829 was painted by Sir Edwin Henry Landseer. Landseer’s dog paintings of the 1830s are among his most popular works. About half consist of commissioned, life-size ‘portraits’, the rest are independent subjects, smaller in scale and usually with a narrative content. This particular work was conceived as a pair with Low Life, and depicting a battle-scarred terrier, guarding his master’s shop. dog portrait paintings

The intention is to juxtapose two dogs from different worlds and different social classes as representations of their absent owners. There is a long literary and pictorial tradition behind such contrasts as virtue and vice, good and evil, which usually have some kind of moral purpose. Here the contrast is more one of character than of morality. The deerhound in this picture reflects an aristocratic world of chivalry; the interior is like a scene from a Walter Scott novel.

Various props scattered on the table and floor give the impression that the dog’s master is a knight: hawking gloves, two rapiers, a sixteenth century-style helmet and breastplate, a standing cup, old leather-bound books, a partially unrolled document, a quill pen, a candlestick made from an eagle’s talon and a bellpull. Through the window can be glimpsed a castellated tower. The dog itself was once thought to have been Scott’s dog Maida, but in pose and colouring the dog is closer to Landseer’s own deerhound, which appears with Maida in A Scene at Abbotsford. This dog represents the chivalrous, the rural and the patrician, as opposed to the feisty terrier, which represents the tough, urban values of the plebeian English workman. dog portraits from photos

Dog Paintings Muff a Black and White Dog

Dog Painting Muff a Black and White Dog was painted by John Wootton. Inscribed ‘J. Wootton’ at the base of a stone pillar on the left and, as if carved across the middle of its column, ‘MUFF’ Presented by Mr Paul Mellon KBE through the British Sporting Art Trust 1979 PROVENANCE? The 2nd Duchess of Portland. This is evidently a pet dog of considerable charm but mixed breedingand indeterminate sex. An old inscription on the back read ‘From the Collection of the Duchess of Portland’. dog paintings for sale

That Margaret Cavendish, 2nd Duchess of Portland, should have asked Wootton to paint a pet dog is perfectly credible, particularly as her father, the 2nd Earl of Oxford, had been one of Wootton’s earliest and most faithful patrons; but no painting of a dog called Muff is recorded in any of the catalogues of pictures at Welbeck Abbey, nor in the sales of the contents of the Duchess of Portland’s Museum in 1786. dog paintings from photos

A portrait by Wootton entitled ‘Minx, a little Spaniel Bitch’ is listed in a MS catalogue of paintings at Welbeck in 1747, and it is conceivable that ‘Muff’ was misread or mistranscribed as ‘Minx’: last recorded at Welbeck in 1861, that picture must subsequently have left the collection. Two paintings of dogs by Wootton remain in the Duke of Portland’s collection: ‘The Countess of Oxford’s Spaniel Casey’, described in the 1747 catalogue as a portrait of the bitch Casey lying on a cushion, with a picture on the wall of Mina and Die, two other dogs; and ‘Two Dogs, Gill and Die, and a Dead Hare’. famous dog paintings
