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.
