Painted around 1850 during the second empire era. Oil on wood panel, signed bottom right. Victor de grandchamp, born in 1832, was specialized in portraiture. This work is a rare portrait of a sitting dog, the close-up position allowing the artist to acutely depict the face expression of the animal.
