George Philip Reinagle, Three dogs fighting, after a painting by Philip Reinagle

Three dogs fighting, after a painting by Philip Reinagle, ca. 1815

George Philip Reinagle (1802 - 1835)

RA Collection: Art

A detailed black and white chalk drawing of three dogs fighting in a landscape. According to the inscription this composition has been copied from a painting by Philip Reinagle, who was well-known as a dog-painter.

This drawing probably came into J.H. Smith's collection when his friend Oriana Georgiana Reinagle, daughter of Philip Reinagle, left him a group of her own drawings and others by members of her family on her death in 1875.
