Portrait of a Borzoi Featured Borzoi Print

Portrait of a Borzoi

Canvas 76 x 63 ins, signed and dated 1890
This painting is a fine example of the breed before it was established as a show dog in this country. It was painted two years before the first Borzoi became a champion. This painting was bequeathed to the Kennel Club by Kathleen, Duchess of Newcastle and may prove to be one of the unsolved mysteries of the collection. A brass plaque that used to be beside the painting stated that the Borzoi is Ch Vetch but in her will the Duchess bequeaths the Borzoi Champion Velsh. In fact there was no champion Borzoi of either name in this country, nether did the Duchess own one so named. She did however own a famous dog named Ch Velsk, the sixth Borzoi to become a champion and the sire of four champions. It would therefore appear that there had been a mix up of names or a mistake of the part of a typist, and Velsk is in fact the dog in the painting. However photographs of Velsk show a dog with entirely different markings to the dog in the painting. F
