Oil painting on canvas un-lined in the original gold frame re-gilded by the Mitchell Studio Gallery Classic frame studio.
Good, re-line conservation recommended to preserve the painting for the next hundred years.
From the collection of a retired art dealer wrongly listed as George Armfield. Round portraits by Armfield are very rare.
The painting is now attributed to George Earl who painted many round and oval portrait paintings of Dogs.
George Earl
1824 – 1908 British

George was a London sporting and animal painter, primarily of sporting dogs and other animals who exhibited at Royal Academy from 1857 to 1883, also at the British Institute and Suffolk Street. George specialised in sentimental or dramatised pictures of dogs. He painted a large number of round and oval portraits of Dogs. Earl was a keen sportsman and this is reflected in his work and reputation as a dog painter. He was also an early member of The Kennel Club. Although chiefly remembered as a canine artist due to his success depicting them, of the nineteen paintings Earl exhibited at the Royal Academy only two are of dogs.
