Description This charming 19th century British oil painting is by famous animal artist Philip Eustace Stretton. The painting was painted circa 1890 in a Realist palette with great detailed brushwork. The composition is a gorgeous Collie dog looking out of a window, perhaps for his owner. He is in danger of knocking over a pot of vibrant geraniums in his excitement. The painting is an excellent example of Stretton's artistry and ideal for dog lovers out there. Signed lower right.
