Artist Name Count Walter Von Looz-Corswarem (1874-1946)
Title Portrait of a Borzoi Dog
Description This charming 19th century dog portrait is by German artist Count Walter von Looz-Corswarem. It is signed and dated (18)98 when the Count would have been 24 years old. He went on to make his name painting military figures and portraits. Even at such a young age his skill is very apparent for he has perfectly captured the sweet soul of this beautiful Borzoi, surely his own well known and well-loved dog. His brushwork has also perfectly captured its hair and markings. However, the highlight has to be the dog's eyes, tones of brown and green and full of all the good qualities dogs are renowned for - loyalty, empathy and patience.  A lovely painting for all dog lovers out there and an excellent example of Looz-Corswarem's work.
