This painting is a dog lovers dream. It features two bird dog breeds, an English Setter and a Pointer. These breeds are very majestic looking animals and wonderful hunters. Jean Herblet has brought both of these dogs to life in this beautiful watercolor! The paper color is a soft ivory color, there is glare on the background but it is all one color when viewing it in person. Jean Herblet has signed this piece in the lower left hand corner. It is in great condition. It does have a few foxing spots and a small 1” wrinkle under the English Setter.
