Here we have a pastel portrait of an attractive Russian wolfhound/borzoi. The dog looks left and appears relaxed and calm. The artist's technique is fluid and smooth,
and renders the dog in a somewhat impressionistic manner. Signed lower right,
'A. von Hugenett(?)'. I have attempted to research the name and have come up empty, although some of the letters of the last name to me are indecipherable.
I would say the pastel dates to the mid 20th c. A nice example of this popular breed.
