This original and decorative watercolor on card dates to the late 19th century, to circa 1880. The painting is by the highly sought after British artist Stephen T Dadd (fl 1880 – 1912). The painting features a most detailed study of a Bloodhound coursing through a field. The painting is signed ‘S. T.D’ in the bottom right corner. This original painting is housed behind glass in an attractive modern gilded frame.
Stephen T Dadd was born in Poplar, Middlesex, England in 1859; he came from a family of artists. He was a specialist painter of dogs; interestingly his occupation is listed in the 1881 census as an ‘Artist Animal Painter’. Stephen’s illustrations were regularly published in the London Illustrated News.
Measuring: Frame width 11.75 inch (30 cm) by height 8.75 inch (22.5 cm). Aperture approximately width 6.75 inch (17 cm) by height 3 3/8 inch (8.5 cm).
Condition: The small, rectangular painting is in very good condition. The frame although decorative and sturdy, upon closer scrutiny has some old filler to a corner joint of the inner slip. Some minor areas of gilt touch up around the outer decorative beading and back corners.
This wonderful watercolor will display excellently in any home. This is the perfect painting for anyone who loves animals. Paintings by Stephen T Dadd are rarely available; this is the perfect opportunity to own such a piece by this talented British artist.
