Original works of art

Henry Crowther
(English, fl. 1905 -1939 )

Henry Crowther worked in the tradition of the itinerant artist, visiting kennels throughout the British Isles and painting portraits of the important show dogs of the day. He also attended all the principal British conformation dog shows since at least 1900 and was known to “guarantee a correct likeness.” Around 1913, he expanded his subject matter to include horses.

While somewhat formulaic in composition, Crowther painted from life, often inscribing his paintings with the dogs’ names. His body of work represents an important visual record of British purebred dogs from the first half of the twentieth century.
