Samuel Fulton (1848-1930)
|Portrait of Dodo - Pekingese Dog
|This absolutely charming portrait of a Pekingese dog called Dodo is attributed to much loved Scottish artist Samuel Fulton. Famous as an animal artist and chiefly a painter of dogs, this has got to be one of his best if you are a Pekingese fan. Painted circa 1920, Dodo, a lovely little black and tan dog is sat profile but is turning to look at the artist/viewer. Beneath him is a beautiful orange and brown Persian rug. Fulton has perfectly captured with his brushwork his longer hair on his legs and chest and the cute curl of his tail. Dodo’s black eyes shine with intelligent curiosity. It is a wonderful painting of a real character and Dodo deserves to find his forever home.
