About this title

Synopsis:

Dog Painting - The European Breeds gives an historical overview of the extraordinary range of dog paintings created in Europe during the nineteenth century. While English artists dominated the field, many prominent European artists produced a wide range of paintings depicting the dog. Over ninety breeds are depicted in these paintings, from the lap dogs and hunting dogs of the aristocracy to the common shepherd's dogs who were prized for their keen working abilities. The book concentrates on the types of dogs and dog paintings which were characteristic of the countries of Europe, and the different national attitudes towards dogs and the organisation of canine societies. It also focuses on the many different European breeds. Over ninety are discussed in detail under five headings: Working and Herding; Hounds; Toys and Non-Sporting; Terriers; and Sporting Dogs. Dog Painting - The European Breeds also looks at the art worlds of the different European countries and the numerous artists who portray
