'Best of Friends' Carl Suhrlandt Antique Dog Oil Painting
A fine large 19th-Century oil painting by listed artist, Carl Suhrlandt (1828 – 1919). Dated 1884, this superb large work is a portrait of a terrier and hound, oil on canvas. It is an excellent quality scene by the well known dog and horse painter. It depicts the pair at the entrance steps of a large estate. An artist of considerable skill, he has painted the dogs with an expressive, dynamic brush stroke with fine detail to the heads, coats and mannerisms. This portrait was probably a commission from an English aristocratic. Carl Suhrlandt was born into a family of artists, son of Rudolf Friedrich Carl Suhrlandt (1781-1862), a painter, lithographer and draughts man, and Wilhelmint, a lithographer. He was a pupil of Ary Scheffer in Paris. From 1859-1860, he worked in Copenhagen, then moved to St. Petersburg where in 1861 he became a member of the Academy. He settled in Schwerin where he worked as a professor at the Art Academy. Most of his paintings depict animals with a preference for horses and dogs. He made several visits to England where he painted similar works commissioned by the aristocracy.
