Hound Pointing

 

Kit Price: $45.00

Chart Price $13.00

 

#222 - Hound Pointing by Constant Troyon

This is the celebrated Hound Pointing by Constant Troyon (1810-1865), now
housed in The Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston, Massachusetts. As a highly
esteemed member of the venerable French Academy, Constant Troyon enjoyed success
during his lifetime, and his memorable paintings of rural animals can be
found in the world's greatest museums.

In this ingenious image of Hound Pointing, Troyon positions the viewer in
the midst of the hunt, with its tension and excitement. Visually placing us
immediately behind the dog, among the wind-swept leaves and scrub of a wide
ditch, Hound Pointing invites us to emotionally partake in the energetic scene.
The pointer's elegant turn marks its sudden thrill, as it balances, sniffing
the air - perhaps picking up the scent of a hidden squirrel or rabbit.
Troyon's hound is all anticipation. Our team of artists has translated the dynamic
Hound Pointing into an oversized chart so that you, the stitching enthusiast,
can recreate this masterpiece with an equal verve and sense of the 'woodsy'
adventure.

#221 - Portrait of an Extraordinary Musical Dog by Philip Reinagle

This is the delightful Portrait of an Extraordinary Musical Dog by Philip Reinagle (1749-1833). As a member of the venerable Royal Academy in London, Reinagle was a successful artist during his lifetime, enjoying the acclaim and popularity accorded to proven masters. Specializing in animal paintings, the sensitive artist perfected his work without the romantic excesses that tragically plagued so many of his peers and that now capture the contemporary imagination. Rather, the artist's ordered environment is reflected in the methodical world he recorded and created with command and clarity.

With his fanciful musical score open, the canine pianist does not regard the inviting landscape through the open window, as any common dog might. Instead, the spaniel looks directly at his audience with the intensity of a Haydn or Beethoven, perhaps caught in a moment of solitary contemplation. Given the dignity and ingenuity of the spaniel in this turn of the century masterpiece, it is understandable that Portrait of an Extraordinary Musical Dog remains one of the most popular holdings of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond. Our team of European trained artists have translated this memorable picture into an oversized chart so that you can recreate this priceless treasure for your own.

Project  Information:

  • Number of Colors: 41
  • Stitch Count: 225w X 179h
  • Finished Size: 16" x 12Ê" when stitched on 14 count white Aida cloth.
