An American oil on board dog painting from the late 19th century in giltwood frame. How not to melt in front of this heartwarming scene? A russet and white dog is comfortably resting on a red drape whose deep color compliments the dog’s coat beautifully, while the fabric’s diagonal folds oppose the dog’s body direction. Glancing at us kindly with his green eyes, this peaceful dog is the emblem of loyalty. Unsigned and set inside a giltwood frame, this American oil on board painting circa 1890 will bring a touching presence to any room, perhaps hung above a chest-of-drawers, side table or demilune.
