 1897 Large Oil On Canvas Signed S.Y Johnson

This charming painting on canvas is of three beloved dogs up in the Scottish highlands signed S.Y. Johnson, an English painter from the latter part of the 19th century. Johnson created a number of his painting in Scotland and used natural settings to paint his subjects. In this work, three hunting dogs lie at rest while their owner sits at bay. One can see that the dogs are looking lovingly at their master. The background, with the muted mountains and mist intermingled with the mountains almost look like it is one step away from heaven. The composition, the highlighting of color in all the right places, certainly add to the desirability for this painting. Original ornate frame. Measures 37 1/2" wide x 28" long including frame.
