An Artist's Models

ALDIN, Cecil

Regular price $75.00 Sale

Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) was known for his illustrations and paintings of the English countryside, animals, and the sportsmans lifestyle, especially fox hunting. He also painted dogs, his own as well as others. This book tells the humorous stories of his models, both professional and amateur - so well that the reader actually knows Cracker, Susan, Jemima, and Von Tirpitz.
