1905 Great Dane oil by Mrs Minnie Fox (English, 1875-1976)
An oil on canvas of a head study of a ‘Blue’ Great Dane by Mrs Minnie Fox (English, 1875-1976).
Not just a famed British school canine artist, but along with her husband she was a renown breeder and exhibitor of Great Danes, with a successful kennel. He was a founding hon. secretary of the Great Dane Club. And she was commissioned to draw the breed standard for the club. This is probably one of her Great Danes, and an historic oil of the breed. Signed and dated bottom right “Minnie Fox 1905”
