Portrait Of A Red Setter

Regular price £149.00

DESCRIPTION

An adorable vintage portrait of a young Red Setter dog. Although primarily a hunting breed, setters can also become wonderful companions and life-long family dogs. Their lively nature means that they require plenty of walks and they’ll also enthusiastically greet any visitors.

One of the first known references to the ‘Setter’ dates back to around 1570 and can be found in ‘Caius's De Canibus Britannicus’.

‘When he hath founde the byrde, he keepeth sure and fast silence, he stayeth his steppes and will proceed no further, and weth a close, covert watching eye, layeth his belly to the grounde and so creepth forward like a worme. When he approaches neere to the place where the byrde is, he layes him downe, and with a marcke of his pawes, betrayeth the place of the byrdes last abode.’

The painting is housed within a simple wooden frame.

Framing

If the images display the artwork framed, then the frame is included in the price. For those that are unframed, we can handle the framing for you should you wish. We always try to source frames that are appropriate for the age of the painting but can also provide contemporary alternatives if you prefer. You only pay for the cost of the actual frame (usually £30 - £50) as we include the labour for free.
