Lucy Dawson is one of the best known dog artists of the early twentieth century.  Dawson,  (who worked under the pseudonym of ‘Mac’) worked in pencil, pen, ink and oil, but was best known for her pastels.

The portrait above bears an eerie resemblance to a shepherd dog mentioned frequently in this blog.

    I have several Dawson prints, and use one as my “logo” for the “kennel.”

    She drew many kinds of dogs, but seemed to have a real fondness for farm collie types.

    I think the coolest thing is, we don’t have to think about “breeding toward” an ideal presented in a work of art. The art and photography of another era show us that we are the inheritors of an ideal that has been well-conserved all along.
