Maud Alice Earl was a British-American canine painter, born in London in 1864. Her father was a noted sporting painter and taught Maud how to develop her artistic skills. He promoted the study of anatomy and encouraged Maud to produce drawings of dog, horse and human skeletons. Earl went on to study at the Royal Female School of Art. She exhibited at both the Royal Society of British Artists and at the Royal Academy. After the First World War, with her reputation established at a time when women were not expected to make their living working as an artist, Earl moved to New York. She went on to secure select clientele with patrons such as Queen Victoria and Queen Alexandra

The canvas has not been relined. Slight undulation to the canvas and a couple of minor surface abrasions. Otherwise, in good condition. No evidence of retouching visible under UV light, however a light masking varnish may conceal minor retouching.

Artist's Resale Rights (“Droit de Suite”)

Lots marked with a delta symbol (δ) are subject to the Artist's Resale Right Law.The buyer agrees to pay Bloomsbury Auctions an amount equal to the resale royalty and we will pay such amount to the artist's collecting agent. Resale royalty applies where the Hammer price is 1,000 Euros or more and the amount cannot be more than 12,500 Euros per lot. The amount is calculated as follows:

Royalty For the portion of the Hammer Price (in Euros)
4.00% up to 50,000
3.00% between 50,000.01 and 200,000
1.00% between 200,000.01 and 350,000
0.50% between 350,000.01 and 500,000
0.25% in excess of 500,000

Invoices will, as usual, be issued in Pounds Sterling. For the purposes of calculating the resale royalty the Pounds Sterling/ Euro rate of exchange will be the European Central Bank reference rate on the day of the sale.
