Oil on canvas copy after Edwin Landseer.
This is an extremely well executed copy of 'Young roebuck and rough hounds' by Edwin Landseer (1802-1873)
The original painting was exhibited at the British Institute in 1840. In his Catalogue of the Works of the Late Edwin Landseer, published in 1876, A. Graves states that the roebuck was shot by Lord Cosmo Russell, who was also the owner of the two upper dogs: Melody and Toddy. The painting is a good example of Landseer's ability to portray a patron's favourite dogs in an imaginative composition.
The painting is in a wood and gesso gilt frame and measures (incl.frame) 73 cm x 60 cm.
