NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle will hold an auction of Dogs in Art & Sporting Art on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 at 10am. It will be offered as a featured section of the sale of American Paintings, Furniture & Decorative Arts. Showcased will be 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 will vie 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. In a fine example from the Estate of a Long Island Lady, a huntsman stops to adjust his saddle girth while his horse and two hounds interact like companions in the field (est. $10,000-15,000).
