Maud Earl.
Photographische Gesellschaft - Berlin Photographic Company Berlin, London W, 133 New Bond Street; New York, 14 East 23rd Street. Copyright 1906
Photogravure, 215 x 350mm
Three Otterhounds. July - From the Sportsman Calendar. Maud Alice Earl (1864-1943) was an eminent British-American canine painter. Her works are much enjoyed by dog enthusiasts and also accurately record many breeds. Earl was the born in London, the daughter of artist George Earl and his first wife Alice Beaumont Rawlins. Maud's profession was the continuation of a family tradition. George Earl, an avid sportsman and noted sporting painter, was his daughterís first teacher and had his daughter study the anatomy of her subjects, drawing dog, horse and human skeletons to improve her skill. She later said that her fatherís instruction had given her ability that set her apart from other dog painters. After her father's tutelage Maud went on to study at Royal Female School of Art (later incorporated into the Central School of Art). Earl became famous during the Victorian Era, a time when women were not expected to make their living at painting. Nevertheless, she developed a select clientele, including Royals amongst her patrons such as Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra. Although evidently extremely successful in England, Earl felt that the world she knew had been destroyed by World War I and she emigrated to New York City in 1916. By this time her work had received wide international recognition and her popular images were published in a number of books and in print form. The Sportsman's Year featured twelve of Earl's works as engravings. Maud Earl died in New York in 1943 and is buried at Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow, New York.

A small spaniel, the main character in Francis Coventry's hugely-successful satirical novel, 'The History of Pompey the Little; or, The Life and Adventures of a Lap-Dog', first published 1751. Pompey, born in Bologna ('a place famous for lap-dogs and sausages') describes society as he passes from owner to owner, exchanged for sexual favours, a gold watch and a pint of porter. Many of the human characters are thinly-veiled versions of society figures. The last edition was published in 1924.
