A Girl holding a Spaniel
Jean-Bapiste Greuze (Tournus 1725 – Paris 1805)
Oil painting on walnut panel, A Girl holding a Spaniel, Jean-Baptiste Grueze (1725-1805), circa 1786. A head-and-shoulders to right, her head turned towards the spectator over her right shoulder, a small frightened spaniel, only the head of which is seen, clasped in her arms resting on a mauve and blue cushion; she wears a yellow dress, a blue ribbon in her hair, a green one falling across the cushion.
Given with Upton House to the National Trust by Walter Samuel, 2nd Viscount Bearsted (1882 – 1948) shortly before his death
