Cecil Aldin (1870-1935) was a prolific English artist and illustrator. While living in London, he became friends with the Beggarstaff Brothers (William Nicholson and James Pryde), with John Hassall, Phil May and Dudley Hardy, and their influence on his work was great. Aldin, however, developed his own style and was particularly skillful at conveying the humor, love and antics of the dogs and other animal friends. He did a great deal of advertising work, including posters, for such companies as Bovril, Coleman and Cadbury's. Royal Doulton, the china manufacturer, produced about sixty items with Aldin's art between 1910 and 1939. The obituary in The London Times asserted that there never yet has been a painter of dogs fit to hold a candle to him.
Cecil Aldin has always been a favorite of ours here at Green Tiger Press, and we have laughed at his wonderful illustrations and reproduced many of them over the years.
This print is made at our location in Seattle, WA. It comes with a thick, white backing board and is sealed in a clear bag. At 11 inches x 14 inches, it is suitable for framing or can be used as is for wall display. Our goal is to bring back to life these wonderful illustrations from old-fashioned, children's books and from early advertising art.
