NEW YORK, NY -- Paddles will be wagging at Doyle's popular auction of Dogs in Art® and Sporting Art on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 10am. Scheduled to coincide with the annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, the auction will showcase a wide range of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints and other objects devoted to dogs, horses and sporting art.
Meet of the Royal Buckhounds at Ascot Heath by Richard Barrett Davis (1782-1854), from the Estate of Percy Rivington and Evelyn Sloane Pyne, was one of many pictures by the artist that portrays a Royal hunt. His father was huntsman to the Royal harriers of George III, and his brother Charles, pictured astride a favorite grey, was the Queen’s huntsman. Davis studied under Sir William Beechey, R.A. and at the Royal Academy, and in 1831 was appointed animal painter to William IV and later Queen Victoria (est. $30,000-40,000).
