Full Description

David Remfry MBE RA has long been fascinated by the relationships that develop between dogs and their owners. In this charming new book, his delicate portraits in watercolour and gouache reveal the mutual understanding and sympathy of these partnerships. Many of his portraits are accompanied by sketches from the artist’s many notebooks alongside brief accounts by his sitters of how dog and owner came to find each other. Remfry’s lively watercolours and sketches illustrate such celebrities as Ethan Hawke (and Nina), Susan Sarandon (and Penny and Rigby) and Alan Cumming (and Honey). Some of the sitters were fellow residents at the iconic Bohemian outpost, the Chelsea Hotel.
