Description

Newfoundland dogs have a centuries old relationship with the sea. They were seafarers companions, work partners and in the event of disaster, saviours. Their vigilance on the ships, docks and beaches saved many lives. Since the 17th century artists have painted these magnificent dogs portraying their invaluable contribution. This work is my interpretation of the 1856 painting by Sir Edwin Landseer. I hope to have conveyed the poignancy of the rescue of a child from the stormy sea, quite possibly following a shipwreck. This painting is framed, external fame measurement is approximately 88cm x 78cm.
