Percival Rosseau
Top dog at the sale was A Moment's Rest - Foxhounds at a Ford  from 1926 by Percival Rosseau (1859-1937) that achieved $48,000, more than doubling its $18,000-22,000 estimate. Rosseau was born in Louisiana and studied in Paris at the Academie Julian. A painting of his wife with two Irish wolfhounds exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1904 was so well received by the critics that he began specialize in painting dogs. Rosseau returned to the United States in 1915, joined the art colony at Old Lyme, Connecticut, and pursued his specialty of painting scenes of sporting dogs.
