I would rather see the portrait of a dog that I know, than all the allegorical paintings they can show me in the world
Sir John Hawkins, 1787
Sporting art continues to be a popular English tradition. We have many clients who choose to have their dogs and horses painted or sculpted before they commission portraits of their family.
Prices range from £500 to £15,000. Horse and dog portraits can be an ideal birthday or Christmas present as they can be more easily organised if it is a secret. With regard to sittings, usually one is enough and the artists need to take their own photographs in order to organise the direction of the light.
