Dogs and Art

The William Secord Gallery specializes in fine nineteenth century dog and animal paintings. The only gallery of its kind in North America, it was established by William Secord in 1990. Since then, it has become a popular destination for those interested in dog art and collectibles. William Secord is the world authority on the nineteenth century dog painting and is the first author to explore the presentation of the dog from its origins to the remarkable paintings of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and up to modern times. The gallery is holding a special exhibition to coincide with the Westminster Dog Show. Nineteenth Century Dog Paintings opens on February 9 and runs until March 22, 2008. (via)
