About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
The dogs in this painting were probably owned by Reverend Thomas Vyner of Lincolnshire. Formal animal portraiture was a well-established genre by the mid-1700s, and Stubbs’ portraits, capturing something of the personality of the animals, were popular. The naturalistic poses of these hounds have been celebrated as an almost human interaction.

About the artist
George Stubbs was an English painter, draughtsman and printmaker. His study of anatomy enabled him to paint animals with unsurpassed truth to nature, while his innate sense of design led to graceful, rhythmic compositions. His contemporary reputation was chiefly based on portraits of horses and dogs, but he also painted human portraits, conversation pieces and imaginative subjects with animals. He later experimented with enamel painting and perfected a beautiful mixed-method printmaking technique.
