A new portrait of a former Kennel Club Chairman has been added
to the Club's art collection.
The oil on canvas painting is a candid portrait of Professor Steve
Dean BVetMed MRCVS DVR and his dogs Annaghbella Charm and Ch
Stineval Acerola with Tyrian, and was painted by contemporary
artist Patrick Jackson.
The portrait was painted using source photographs taken by noted
photographer Marc de Henrie, and follows the format of the existing
portraits of past Chairmen of the Kennel Club, while representing a
21st century take on formal portraiture.
The artist, Patrick Jackson, has produced many portraits of both
people and animals, and studied at the Ecole Superieure d'Arts
Graphiques Penninghen in Paris before embarking on his career. His
work is held in private collections in the US, South Africa, Hong
Kong and the UK. He lives and works in London.
