C. Henshaw (British, 19th C)


Oil on canvas, laid down. Signed. Circa 1840

This composition is based on a sculpture of a boy and girl with their cat which was reproduced in parianware by Copeland (see enlargement #6). The title comes from a reference by the poet James Hoag to one of Robert Burns' dogs: "The Ettrick Shepherd, a judge of collies, says that Luath is true to the life, and that many a hundred times he has seen the dogs bark for very joy, when the cottage children were merry." Painting: 19.5" x 17"
Frame 24" x 21."
