TC1699 TC1697 TC1705 TC1695 TC1702 TC1703

George Earl (1824–1908) was a painter, primarily of sporting dogs and other animals. He was also the father of Maud Earl and Percy Earl, and the brother of Thomas Earl, all three of whom were also animal artists. Earl was a keen sportsman and this is reflected in his work and reputation as a dog painter. He was also an early member of The Kennel Club. Although chiefly remembered as a canine artist due to his success depicting them, of the nineteen paintings Earl exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1857 and 1882 only two were of dogs.

This fine quality pair of 19th C. oil on canvas portraits of 2 dogs featuring a Pug and a Samoyed, each displayed in a highly ornate, carved square gilt wood frame. Each portrait measures 19 in – 48.2 cm square with a depth of 2 in - 5 cm.

They are priced £5,800.00 for the pair.

TC1397 TC1395 TC1393 TC1398 TC1396

This 19th c. oil on canvas was done by English landscape artist Benjamin William Leader. He was born in Worcester in 1831 as Benjamin Leader Williams but changed his name to Benjamin Williams Leader to distinguish himself from the many other painters with the surname Williams. Leader's early works bore the influence of the Pre-Raphaelites with their attention to fine detail and emphasis on painting from nature "en plein air". In his later years he adopted a looser style which was more impressionistic rather than being an exact copy of nature and this proved to be more popular. This picture of an Alpine landscape is signed and dated 1870.

The painting measures 24 ¾ in – 63 cm wide, 20 ¼ in – 51.5 cm high and 2 3/8 in – 6 cm in depth, inclusive of the frame. 

The painting is priced at £3,750.00.
