In The Artist’s Models (1930), a collection of dog portraits by Cecil Aldin, readers learn about his process. Owners left their dogs with him, allowing him to study them and create winning portraits reflecting their personalities. His excellence as a pet portraitist grew with Cracker, the bull terrier, and Mickey, the Irish Wolfhound, his favorites. It's told that Cracker would crack bones for Mickey, who, in turn, reached inaccessible items with his height. It's fun to meet these dogs across time! See this image as an art print!

Cecil Aldin (1870–1935) was a prominent English artist known for his exceptional talent in capturing the charm and character of animals, particularly dogs and horses. Born in Slough, England, he became renowned for his expressive and lively illustrations, which often portrayed the endearing antics of animals. His love for hunting and country life greatly influenced his art. His diverse work includes illustrations for books, advertisements, and magazine covers, along with delightful depictions of his beloved dogs!
