This is a large 19th century engraving featuring several dogs at left apparently just discovering a fox in the dog house. The fox appears to have been tethered by human hand, so something needs explanation; there is humor in the improbable scene. The artist signed the print in pencil at lower left. Carter was well known in his day as animal painter and illustrator. He contributed to the London Illustrated News in the Victorian heyday, and was known as well for portraits. The artist exhibited at the Royal Academy and drew favorable review from famed art critic John Ruskin. Some of Carter's finest original paintings have achieved $50,000 at auction. As this is large and heavy, contact me to discuss shipping options. The glass is already cracked in one corner so most likely the piece will be shipped without that glass. Measurements are 22" by 28 1/2" image and 34" by 42" as framed. Encino
