A Rest between Labours

Image of A Rest between Labours


A striking close portrayal of the working Clumbers at Clumber Park by John Emms (1843-1912), probably one of his later works, judging from the bold brushwork that not merely captures the character and presence of some of the breed’s foundation stock while taking a breather from their successful hunt, but brings these beautiful dogs to life.

A superb quality image, printed to demanding standards, faithfully reproducing the original painting in oils, available as a limited edition of 500 copies, individually numbered. Dimensions (including two-inch border) approx. 17 x 20 in. (43 x 51 cm.).
