Cracker as a silly ass

Cecil Aldin of the most popular artists of his era, first worked as a magazine illustrator but became known on both sides of the Atlantic as a talented sporting artist . His personal interests included fox-hunting, horse-racing, golfing and the countryside and his illustrations included all these subjects and more including pastoral scenes, cathedrals and London gentry but it is for his charming and often humorous dog illustrations that he is most remembered.
His affection for dogs, shines out of every one of illustrations and his understanding of all things canine allowed him to create works of art that were at the time said 'to capture the very soul of the dog'.

Cracker was Cecil Aldin's favourite model and was loved very dearly by both him and his wife. Such was their devotion that when Cracker died 2 years after Cecil he was given his own obituary in the newspaper.

'Cracker, the bull terrier, for many years the beloved companion and favourite model of the late Cecil Aldin, died July 31st, Mallorca. Deeply mourned'

Ideal unique present for any dog lover.

Size is 10" x 8" with black mount

All prints are enclosed in a clear cover and posted in hardback envelopes which state 'Please do not bend' in large red writing on the front, for their protection.
