Cocker Spaniel [Violet Thorne Seckham]

DESCRIPTION

A beautiful depiction of a black cocker spaniel by listed artist, Violet Thorne Seckham (1865 - 1966). This is one of those instances whereby the worn appearance of the canvas and frame seem to enhance the image rather than detract from it. Seckham has captured the spaniel’s expression superbly - from the delicate shape of its eye, through to the vivid touches of light reflecting off its nose.

Seckham was an accomplished painter of animal portraits and her works rarely surface these days.

Signed and dated in the bottom right.

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.
