During the 19th century in England there was a growing love for domestic animals and many artists received commissions to portray them. Though there were hundreds of artists who painted pictures of animal during this period, only a handful dedicated their lives to this pursuit and George Armfield was one of them.
Whether it was a group of gun dogs at rest before or after the hunt, a pet King Charles Spaniel in a landscape or terriers on the hunt his animals are portrayed as regal and charming - characteristics that very few artists could emulate. His ability to render his subjects realistically and three?dimensionally created a great demand for his work and he was, and still is, among England’s finest animal artists.
George Armfield Smith (the name he was known until the year 1840) was born in Wales (actually Bristol: according to Armfield family information). His father, the portrait painter William Armfield Hobday (1771-1831), had a studio at 54, Pall Mall, London, and from his father, George Armfield obtained any artistic education he may have received.
