EDINBURGH.- Bonhams Scotland celebrates the unique bond between humans and their faithful canine companions with the return of The Dog Sale featuring a selection of paintings, drawings, works of art, and other items. The sale will take place at Bonhams Melville Crescent on Wednesday 8 November.

Leo Webster, Specialist in Pictures at Bonhams Scotland comments, “We have had an amazing, international response to this sale. From 19th century sporting subjects to portraiture, ceramics, bronzes, and even collars, we really wanted to show the breadth of dogs in art and of course, celebrate the enduring relationship we have with our canine companions.”

Leading the 250-lot sale is an oil painting by British artist John Emms (1843-1912) of The New Forest Buckhounds, 1896 with an estimate of £50,000-70,000. Emms specialised in the paintings of hounds with the New Forest Hounds being a frequent subject for the artist.

The sale will feature a rich mix of breeds including a portrait of A French Bulldog from 1900 by Maud Earl (1863-1943) with an estimate of £8,000-12,000. Earl was renowned for her paintings of pure-bred and important dogs of her day. Dalmatians will also feature with a portrait of ‘Buster’, ‘Shandy’, and ‘Bluett’ by the British artist, Frances Mabel Hollams (1877-1963) with an estimate of £4,000-6,000 and a charming portrait of ‘Algy’- A Dandie Dinmont by the same artist with an estimate of £2,500-3,500. The Dandie Dinmont took its name from a novel by the Scottish historian, novelist, poet and playwright, Sir Walter Scott, and is highly prized as a working terrier in the Scottish Borders.

Bronzes will also be highlighted, including a magnificent bronze of a Pekingese by the American artist Gertrude Katherine Lathrop (1896-1986) with an estimate of £8,000-12,000, and a large bronze of a German Pointer by German artist, Joseph Körschgen (1876-1937) with an estimate of £3,000-5,000. An exceptionally large cold-painted bronze of a Borzoi by Franz Xavier Bergmann (Austrian, 1861-1936) will be offered also with an estimate of £3,000-5,000.

Joining the pack are “Sidi”- A Poodle with a Tennis Racket by Professor Paul Friedrich Meyerheim (1842-1915) with an estimate of £6,000-8,000 and ‘Morrell’of Mannerhead - A Prized Poodle by Frederick Thomas Daws (1878-1956), sporting a very fine green bow, with an estimate of £2,000-3,000.
