The perfect vintage accent for the lake home of any dog owner! This framed print of a Chessy was done by Edwin Megargee (1883-1958), who was famous for his direct (non-romantic) portraits of pure bred dogs, many of which are in the collection of the American Kennel Club.

"To say that Megargee was a dog person would be a great understatement, for his love of animals in general - and dogs in particular - went back to his early childhood. ...he proclaimed that “ As far back as I can remember, I used to lie on my stomach and draw pictures of animals. I think every small boy tries to draw dogs and cats because these are the creatures closest to his heart. The complete understanding between a small boy and his dog still seems rather wonderful to me...” This wonderful quote about the artist is from
http://www.dogpainting.com/info_detail.cfm?arts_id=EM, where you can find additional information about Megargee.

The grayish wood frame measures 15” by 12.5”, and the image is 12” by 9.5”. Signed 'Edwin Megargee' on the front, and listed as 'Gun Dog #5 The Chesapeake Bay Retriever by Megargee' on the back. This was designed without glass, and has a wire for hanging on the back. Reasonable vintage condition - the cardboard print is warped and a bit faded or discolored on the right half, with a few dings in the cardboard, and the backing paper is in bad shape. The frame also has some minor dings.The original Gimbels price tag is still partially attached.

I am happy to ship internationally - please convo me for a quote if your country is not listed.
