Herbert Dicksee and his family owned a variety of different breeds of dogs which enabled him to paint them from life, such as “Hope”. The Cairn is one of the native Scottish Breeds and from the 17th century had been used in the Western Highlands and the Isle of Skye to keep down vermin which were a threat to game. They often worked in small packs and they take their name from the Cairn - small outcrop of stones, common in the highland moors.
