About this Item

Engraving and aquatint. With hand colour. Printed on laid paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some light scuffing in the margins. A dramatic portrait of Dash, Colonel Thornton's prized pointer, after a painting by Sawrey Gilpin. Sawrey Gilpin studied art under Samuel Scott, the well-known landscape painter. He devoted himself to sporting art and developed a keen eye and hand for horse portraiture. In 1773 he was made a Director of the Society of Artists, and in the following year he was elected President. Gilpin caught the eye of Colonel Thornton who became his chief patron, commissioning such noted paintings as "The Death of the Fox," which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1793. This striking image is a portrait of Colonel Thornton's treasured hound Modish, and is one of two portraits painted by Gilpin of Thornton's hunting dogs. Robert Pollard and Francis Jukes produced many prints together with Pollard doing the etching and Jukes the aquatinting. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints, 124-125.
