Narrative: IT has been said of some dogs that they could do everything but speak. Those of Sir Edwin Landseer seem to possess even this accomplishment. His pictures of animals are always exceedingly expressive, but in painting dogs the particular bent of his genius is best displayed. Every emotion of which it is to be supposed dog nature is capable, is represented in his pictures with surpassing fidelity. In the accompanying picture a noble English mastiff sits watching a door, through which, from the, drops of blood on the floor, it may be supposed his wounded master has been carried. A feather evidently torn from his hat, seems to confirm this idea, while on the table his steel gauntlets repose, the polished metal reflecting the light in bright contrast to the surrounding gloom. The attitude of the dog- and the look of painful suspense with which he regards the closed door, all tell of the anxiety he feels for his human companion. The picture is a good example of the style of the artist, and shows in a marked degree the faculty he possessed of representing the expression of animals. Sir Edwin Landseer was born in London in 1802, and when a mere child, gave tokens of his ability as an animal painter. He began to exhibit when little more than fourteen years of age, and rose by swift stages to the highest rank in his Profession. He has produced several works in bronze, and was commissioned by the British Government to model the four lions which now ornament the base of Nelson's Column in London. The latter are among the finest public works of Art in the British Metropolis. He was elected to succeed the late Sir Charles Eastlake as President of the Royal Academy, but declined the office. His death occurred in 1874. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy! Any print purchased from me may be returned for any (or no) reason for a full refund including all postage. seller since 1998.
