About

A fine large full-length portrait of a Lassie Border Collie dog which was painted in the late 19th century by Kathleen Olander. A stunning dog portrait of a Collie waiting for the master to return to their chair. It is a fine Victorian British realist oil painting by a victorian female artist who was famous for her romantic association with John Ruskin. The dog in this painting was apparently mentioned in letters to Ruskin. Signed lower right and dated 1889. Provenance. Midlands collection. Frame 48 by 35 inches. In good condition. Kathleen Olander. Victorian painter in oils of portraits and figure subjects. Famous for her association with John Ruskin who wanted to marry her. Kathleen Olander, an art student, met Ruskin in the National Gallery, when she was 20 and he was 68. A passionate series of letters and marriage proposal ensued from Ruskin but the affair came to nothing, and was hushed up. Ruskin’s letters only came to light in 1953, when Olander (now Mrs Prynne) published them in a volume entitled: “The Gulf of the Years.” The dog in this painting is apparently mentioned in her letters to Ruskin.
