A Polar Night by Herbert Dicksee

WALPOLES
A Polar Night by Herbert Dicksee, original mezzotint engraving, published by Frost and Reed in 1912 and limited to artists proofs. The original work exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1913. Image 27 in x 16.75 in. Overall dimensions Within the original reeded oak frame. Herbert Dicksee, 1862-1942, was best known for his etchings. His work was very detailed, and in addition to dogs, he established quite a reputation for his depictions of big game animals such as lions, tigers and polar bears. He came from a family of animal artists. Son of Sir Frank Dicksee, his brother the President of the Royal Academy. Influenced by the animal and sporting artist, John Charlton (1849-1917), Dicksee entered the Slade School of Fine Arts when he was sixteen, and at once began to do etchings.
Dicksee first worked for the "Art Journal" and the "Portfolio" magazines. He spent a great deal of his time at zoological gardens and published a number of etchings of wild animals in typical poses, as well as a number of studies of dogs. They were published by Frost and Reed, The Fine Art Society and Arthur Tooth. He was a meticulous craftsman, who preferred to render pet dogs in domestic situations.
Dicksee exhibited 97 paintings at the Royal Academy between 1885 and 1933, several known to be of dogs. He also showed at the Fine Art Society. In 1885 he was elected Royal Etcher. He also became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Painters and Etchers.

Walpoles is an antiques business that has been established for more than 35 years with an extensive stock which can be divided into three broad themes: "The Army" encompassing colonial furniture and works of art, folk art of the British soldier as well as campaign furniture, pictures and objects of a military theme; "The Navy" covering fine and folk art associated with the British Royal and Merchant Navy fleets as well as fine art and objects that fall under a title of "The China Trade"; and finally there is an established core of furniture, pictures and works of art typical of "The English Country House".

Founded by Graham Walpole, the business first set up in Church Street, in London’s Marylebone, and by the end of the 1980s had moved to Westbourne Grove, from where they dealt until the turn of the last century. In 2004 Walpoles relocated to their home town of Greenwich and joined the British Antiques Dealers Association but now work from 111 Portobello Road.
