Fox Terriers at Newstead Abbey

Oil on canvas 35 x 27.5 ins
This painting was completed for the 6th Duchess of Newcastle in c. 1870. A composite picture, it is reasonable to assume that not all the dogs with still alive when it was painted. Historically important, it shows 31 dogs at a transitional time for the Fox Terrier when it was moving from being purely a hunt terrier to one of a show dog as well. Trimmer, the dog to the right of the rabbits, was the first Fox Terrier to win a prize at any British Dog show.
