NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle held an auction of Dogs in Art & Sporting Art on October 8, 2019 as a featured section of the sale of American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts. Showcased were a wide range of canine paintings, prints, sculpture and decorative arts by some of the genre's most important artists. Art collectors and dog fanciers vied for breed portraits that highlight a breed’s characteristics, sporting paintings that illustrate an animal's working abilities, and charming pet portraits, as well as fine prints and sculpture.

British artist Richard Ansdell (1815-1885) trained as a portraitist, but soon found success as a painter of livestock and sporting subjects, often emphasizing the individual personalities of the animals. The top lot of the sale was a fine example by Ansdell from the Estate of a Long Island Lady depicting a huntsman stopping to adjust his saddle girth while his horse and two hounds interact like companions in the field. The engaging work realized $17,500, surpassing its $10,000-15,000 estimate.

The sale also featured work by Randall Davey, John Gifford, John Frederick Hering Sr., Marguerite Kirmse, Michelangelo Meucci and Susan Catherine Moore Waters.
