The Canine Art of Maud Earl

Click on "Learn More" for additional information on the artist, Maud Earl.
Featured in this exhibit is an exciting new addition to the Museum's collection.  This life-size work is a very rare example of Miss Earl's inclusion of a human figure in a painting; however, the names of the "Lady" and her dogs are unknown.  Be sure to come see this extraordinary painting and try to solve the mystery of their identities!
