Portrait of a Boy and His Dog

Full-length folk art portrait of a boy and his dog, oil on canvas, unsigned.

The boy is wearing a brown topcoat with a black belt, white trousers and black pointed shoes. He is holding a whip in one hand and holding the dog’s ear with his other hand. The dog is obviously the boy's protector, whose expression would dissuade any stranger from coming close. A reddish sky and trees are shown in the background.

This charming painting is in a period black frame and is in very good condition, having been professionally conserved, and with only minor in-painting. Early 19th century.
