Oil on canvas in decorative frame.
An utterly charming naive portrait in which the animals almost have a cartoon quality.
The young boy firmly clutches a whistle and looks out as if lost in thought; meanwhile the cat and the spaniel stare fixedly at each other.
This portrait has such a feeling of humour that it makes the viewer smile; it would have been painted by one of the many unknown provincial artists who painted the less moneyed classes.
SIZE: 35 x 29 inches inc. frame.
PROVENANCE:From a Cambridgeshire country house.
