Portrait Of A Black And White Greyhound

Regular price £239.00

DESCRIPTION

A beautiful English school portrait of a handsome black and white greyhound.

This lively, yet often shy, breed of dog dates back as far as 3,000 BC and was an integral part of Egyptian life. It’s played an important role throughout the centuries and is even referred to in the Bible.

In the Middle Ages, greyhounds came close to extinction but were saved thanks to the involvement of the clergy. In 1014, England’s Canute Laws stated that only nobles could own one and anyone responsible for the death of a greyhound could be executed.

The fine-looking specimen dates to around 1960 - 1980 and is housed nicely in a painted vintage frame.
