Attributed to George Garrard (1760 - 1826 London) Portrait of a large brown and white spaniel standing in a wooded landscape. Circa 1785.

Oil on canvas in a giltwood frame.

George Garrard (1760-1826) was primarily an animal painter and sculptor, but he also painted some portraits, landscapes and urban scenes. He was a pupil of Sawrey Gilpin whose daughter he married. He studied at the Royal Academy in London and was an abundant exhibitor, at first of horses and dogs but later expanding his field to scenes in which animals and agricultural life were prominent. From around 1795 onwards he concentrated mainly on sculpture, modelling animals and reliefs. The brewing family of Whitbread became good patrons, as was the Duke of Bedford.
