A 19th century English oil on canvas dog painting of two terriers set within a giltwood frame. This English animal painting features two adorable terriers depicted running in the countryside. The dogs seem to be on the hunt, probably after small animals such as rodents. The overcast blue sky in the background provides the perfect backdrop to highlight the russet and white coats of the dogs. Dog portraits became popular during the 18th century among the hunting aristocracy, and the establishment of The Kennel Club in 1873 further encouraged their popularity. The painting is set within a richly carved antique giltwood frame. Placed anywhere in a home, this lively petite English 19th century painting will be an excellent decorative accent.
