1863 – The Dog that ran away with the brushes

$7.00$28.00

This iconic image of a Newfoundland dog has featured several times during the artistic career of Harrison Weir. This is the early rendition,published firstly in 1863 in “Our Dumb Companions” where it was incongruously entitled “The Dog that ran away with the brushes”. Then an altered (re-engraved)  version appeared on the front page of “Harpers Weekly” in 1867, and simply renamed  “A Dogs Head” (by Harrison Weir). Then, some 39 years after this first rendition, it once again reappeared in “The Animal World” as “The Queen’s Favourite”. Harrison painted it yet again, in water-colours, in 1902 and the original of that version is now part of our permanent collection. All four versions are available in a range of sizes each. This one, is currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
