Pride and Pedigree

8 March – 22 April 2019

This is an exhibition from the Lytham St Annes Art Collection. Sophie Fuce, the Collection’s Development Officer who is presenting the exhibition, says it is about the relationship between Victorians and dogs, the Victorian invention of the pet dog and the symbolism of dogs in Victorian paintings, which is often related to socio-economic status. Also highlighted are the interesting and sometimes humorous stories of the painters in the Collection, who painted or who were invited to paint pet portraits for the Royal Family.
