Portrait Of A Boy With A Dachshund

Portrait Of A Boy With A Dachshund

A 19th-century provincial depiction of a young boy and his favourite dachshund. He’s clutching the dear animal quite firmly so perhaps it was a little less keen to sit for its portrait.

The painting is housed within simple gilded frame that’s probably the original.
