Masterfully animalistic painting depicts a bloodhound and a Scotch terrier sitting in a kennel and looking out. It was executed before 1850s and is a masterfully replic of famous work by world-renown British animals painter Sir Edwin Lanseer (1802 - 1873), executed by him in 1839. Due to the high quality and time of the creation of this work we can assume that " our" work was executed by one of his pupils not much later than the original by the master.
