David Remfry RA on his portraits of people and dogs

Published 11 November 2015

In this video, the Royal Academician discusses his new book which brings together portraits of friends and neighbours with their canine companions.

  • There’s a personal story behind every relationship between a dog and its owner. These stories have long fascinated David Remfry RA, who has been painting his friends and New York neighbours with their pets for the past 10 years.

    We Think the World of You: People and Dogs Drawn Together (RA Publications, £16.99) brings these graphite- and-watercolour portraits together, along with touching tales the sitters told about their canine friends. Here we find Alan Cumming and his rescue dog Honey, Susan Sarandon and her Pomeranians, and Ethan Hawke with his dog Nina (pictured above).
