The Good Companions Exhibition

Friday 31st July 2020 – Sunday 1st November 2020

The Good Companions follows a series of distinct themes: Dogs as Companions, Dogs as Heroes and Sporting Dogs.

Among the works on display, are pieces by such luminaries as George Stubbs, William Hogarth, Edwin Landseer, Dame Elisabeth Frink and Sir Alfred Munnings, with depictions of dogs ranging from cheerful mongrels and sleek greyhounds to determined terriers.

Visitors will see representations of artists own dogs such as Hogarth’s pug, Trump, along with Philip de László’s Chinky and Sir Alfred Munnings’ Black Knight, both Pekingese.

Another famous dog, Edward VII’s Caesar, appears in the exhibition heartbreakingly photographed walking behind the King’s coffin during his funeral in 1910.

From merry spaniels in Francis Hayman’s Thomas Nuthall and his Friend Hambleton Custance to hounds hunting, The Good Companions reveals the unique bond between humans and canines; both as workers in the field, family members in the home and ultimately, our very best of friends.
