Henry Bernard Chalon (1770-1849) studied at the Royal Academy Schools and then started specializing in sporting and animal painting. He was appointed Animal Painter to Frederica Charlotte of Prussia, the Duchess of York and Albany, in 1795, and later to both the Prince Regent and King William IV.  The adult dogs in this painting, Hannibal and Princess, were brought to England from Hesse-Cassel, Germany to be presented to Duchess Frederica afterwhich this painting was finished.  These type of Great Danes were called Wild Boar Hounds or Tiger Dogs at the time.  The painting was reproduced in The Sporting Magazine in 1807 and from thence in Edward C. Ash's Dogs: Their History and Development, Volume 1.
