Champion Dogs of England
Five head studies on one canvas 35.5 x 53.5 ins
The five dogs shown in this painting are: the Yorkshire Terrier Huddersfield Ben owned by Mr Foster, the Blenheim Spaniel Charlie owned by J Dawes, the King Charles Spaniel Hylas owned by Mr Garwood, the Italian Greyhound Molly owned by Mr McDonald and the Pomeranian Tiger owned by Mr Cooper. All of these portraits are painted on to one canvas. Earl completed eight of these composite paintings during the 1870s each containing five portraits, making 40 in total. The series was entitled Champion Dogs of England. A book containing black and white plates of all 40 paintings under the same title was also published. This particular painting is thought to be the only one in the series still intact as the canvasses of the others were cut up so that the individual portraits could be sold separately.
