The William Secord Gallery will present an exhibit—”Canine Masters, The Nineteenth Century”—featuring works by English artists such as Maud Earl (1864–1943), Thomas Earl (fl. 1836–1885, John Emms (1843–1912), and Arthur Wardle (1864–1949), as well as as American artists such as Percival Rosseau (1859-1937) and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait (1819-1905).

Timed to coincide with the Westminster Kennel Club’s 139th annual dog show in New York City, the Gallery will be open from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm on February 15, 16, and 17.

“We are fortunate,” explains Secord, “to offer for sale such an extraordinary group of paintings which depict a wide variety of historic breeds.”

Dog Fancy magazine recently named Secord as one of the forty-five people who changed the dog world. He is widely known as an expert on nineteenth and early twentieth century dog paintings.

This will be the William Secord Gallery’s inaugural exhibition in their new location at 29 West 15th Street in Manhattan’s historic Chelsea district. Apart from exhibition hours, the Gallery is otherwise open by appointment only.

The paintings in the exhibition are all available for purchase, subject to prior sale, and may be viewed on the William Secord Gallery website. For more information, email Galina Zhitomirsky, Gallery Director, or call her at 212-249-0075.
