Frank Brangwyn:
Sleeping baby pug, circa 1920

Unmounted (ref: 5526)

 Signed with initials, inscribed WdB coll.
8 1/2 x 6 1/8 ins. (cm)


Provenance: the collection of Count William de Belleroche

Frank and Lucy Brangwyn - who had no children of their own - were passionate about dogs. They even had rice pudding for lunch every day, not because they liked it, but because their dog Jock did. A tombstone design by Brangwyn (collection of prints and drawings, V&A) is embellished with a wreath of sausages. We are grateful to Libby Horner for assistance.
