An original late 19th century fine art print of a painting by the British artist Frederick Hall that was on display at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago. This antique print, was part of the 1893 Geo. Barrie publication of Art and Architecture by William Walton.
Frederick Hall was an English Impressionist painter, who exhibited at the Royal Academy. The subject in the painting is a King Charles spaniel, who looks dubious at the medicine concocted for him by the elderly gentleman. The original description that accompanies this print describes the work as follows;
"The humour to this very quiet but somewhat ominous scene is distinctly increased by the didactic phrase uses to identify it and which would naturally lead us to expect a very different bon vivant."
Condition: This print is in A- condition on heavy 19th century fine art paper that displays an embossed Columbian Exposition stamp of authenticity. A minor stain appears in the lower right margin, not afftecting the image.
