We all know that terriers are mischievous, and this one seems to define that attribute well. The personality of this fellow certainly comes through clearly in this endearing portrait.

As many Victorian painters were well known for depicting canines for their patrons, friends, and business associates, it is no wonder that this particular dog received the attentions of a skilled artist. The rough, long coat is wonderfully depicted. And if the eyes are really the window to the soul, we know for sure that this guy was quite the rascal.

The painting was done in tondo and the original Victorian frame was made especially for it. The frame is lacquered and gilded. It has decorative gilt scrolling on each corner, as well as a gilded edging to the turned sides. There also is a beaded edge. This intricate frame compliments the charm of this Victorian painting very well.

I have had the painting cleaned and the frame restored professionally. It is therefore in ready-to-hang condition.

It measures 14-1/4 inches square, including the frame.
