|Title||Portrait of a Yawning Dachshund Dog|
|Description||Is there anything more cute than a dog yawning? Especially a gorgeous little Dachshund? I think not. Painted in 1915 and signed G A C, this super little painting is a profile view of a seated conker brown Dachshund. He is caught in the middle of a great big yawn, eyes blissfully closed, ready for a nap on someone's lap. The light from the right is highlighting the dog's head, ear, pink tongue and fore legs, beautifully accentuating its features and anatomy. The palette and brushwork are superb. The background fades downwards from dark to light, making the dog stand out perfectly. This is a superb 1915 oil painting of a lovely little yawning dachshund needing its forever home and perfect for all the dog lovers out there.
Signed with initials lower right G.A.C 1915.
