Description Signed within painting (on bucket): AFT

Tait’s animal paintings were hailed for their masterful realism. Moreover, he captured the personalities of the animals, while maintaining this realism and never venturing toward cartoon. In this work, Tait depicts a chained hound with such plaintive expression that the viewer cannot fail to be moved by it.

The fidelity and charm of Tait’s animal paintings have afforded them great popularity and collectability since they were executed in the nineteenth century. The condition of this work is superb, making it appear as if it was painted just recently. The painting is accompanied by an original poem by C.D. Stewart. The popular subject, fine condition, period frame, and poem make it a wonderful addition to any collector’s home.
