The Open Door
Signed with monogram and dated 1916
Oil on canvas 40 x 47 ins
Sir R W Buchanan Jardine's Greyhound, Long Span, won the Waterloo Cup in 1907. Beating Glenbridge to the finals, Long Span's win was the first Scottish victory since 1880. Riviere painted this tender portrait when both he and Long Span were coming to the end of their lives. The dog is shown in a quiet, reflective mood, which may have been the mood of the artist, whose life had not been all he would have wished for.
