A set of three Victorian oil paintings of dogs - all framed alike with linen mats. Portraits include a collie, bull dog and a blood hound. Each wooden panel bears a label on the back: Lechertier, Barbe & Co. Artists Coulormen and Stationers Manufacturers and Importers, Regent Street London W. Wholesale 7 Glasshouse Street W. The Victorians were fascinated by animals and these portraits have an expressive quality that approximates the human visage of the period.
Each measures 9.5" square framed. Good overall condition - surface of the bull dog is bubbled - overall images and presentation good.
