The Open Door Featured July Print

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

FT Ch Sulhamstead Valla D'Or

Pastel 27.5 x 38.5 ins, signed
Mrs Florence Nagle, owned the two Irish Setters Valla D'Or and Sheilin D'Or. Mrs Nagle was a great friend of Aldin, the friendship being formed through Mrs Nagle's friendship at finishing school in Paris with Aldin's daughter, Gwen. Mrs Nagle trialled her Setters from the 1920s to the 1960s, during which time she made up 18 Field Trial Champions. She help strong beliefs that her dogs should be good lookers as well as good workers and both Valla and Sheilin were winners in the show ring. In the field, Sheilin was the first Irish Setter to win the Champion Stakes, which she did in 1927. The Kennel Club acquired the two paintings following the death of Mrs Nagle in 1988, aged 94. Mrs Nagle maintained that Valla and Sheilin were inseparable in life and should remain so in death and their pictures hang side by side
