This early 20th Century American School features a very fashionable lady with her small dog, perhaps a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, a Shih Tsu or Japanese Chin. The use of watercolor and gouache is quite masterful. The portrait is quite appealing, regardless of what breed dog you may have.

Thanks to a Japanese Chin enthusiast for her email that this is "definitely" a Japanese Chin. Thanks also to a friend who is convinced it is a Cavalier! Finally, to the TWO who believe it is a Shih Tsu ....... well I am a German Shepherd person myself so I cannot decide!
