This delightful painting captures a beagle lounging in his dog house while gazing over the farm yard. Two small chicks feed in a red wooden tub while the rooster watches over in the background. Please enlarge the photos to appreciate the details; note the dog's eyes and face, the feathers of the chicks and the gentle, peaceful "feel" of this painting. The canvas is mounted in a gilt wood and gesso frame and signed H Funch 82 in the lower right - Danish artist Herman Friedrich Funch (1841-1919). There are a few minor nicks and tiny losses to the frame that are consistent with the age of the frame.
