Words of Comfort
J. Alden Weir
Weir came from a family of artists and is perhaps best known for his Impressionist works. He occasionally painted dogs, but mostly composed works showing hunting dogs in the field.
The subject of mixed breeds showing emotion was typical of the Victorian sentimentality of the day. The bulldog in this painting appears to have stopped by to comfort the chained Bloodhound.
French Bulldog, Bloodhound
Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.
