Edward Armfield, Oil on Canvas ‘Where did he go?’
“Where did he go?”
Oil on Canvas
Canvas: 42 x 32 cm
Frame: 54 x 44 cm
This animated pair of dogs at play is a typical subject matter for the 19th Century British painter Edward Armfield, as is its joyfully narratorial title “Where did he go?” The richly rendered red fabric at the bottom right-hand corner, against which the signature is pitched, appears elsewhere in Armfield’s paintings. Positioned here, it anchors the composition in a particularly pleasing way, complemented by the bright and energetic description of straw about the figures.
