Pets in Portraits
Available in Stock
First published in 1998 as The Face in the Corner, this charming book is about the various animals that feature in paintings in the National Portrait Gallery, and their owners. It provides some unusual insights into the special bond between the sitters and their faithful companions, whether they are aristocrats and royalty with their dogs, society beauties with gorgeous cats or Anna Pavlova with her tame swan Jack. With a new introduction by Chris Packham.
