Hi Anna,

Thank you very much for your enquiry. Our file on Furse's Dauntless has an excerpt of a letter from the painting's first owner, Arthur Thomas Williams. What it says will be of interest to you: the painting is of 'the most typical Hound of the Llanharan Foxhounds, for inclusion in [Furse's] picture of John Blandy-Jenkins which was presented to the latter by by a number of subscribers at the Meet of the Glamorganshire Hounds at Llanharan House November 1896. The original picture was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1897.' I hope this gives you a lead for further research into your painting!

Best wishes,

Marc

Hi. 28/1/17.
My name is Anna Roth and I live in Sweden.
We have a picture with a signature of Charles Wellington Furse . With a man in Hunting pink sitting on a horse with a lot of dogs around him.
One the left down corner is a dog very similar to your one AN, NMW A 3932
The size is of our picture is 150x105 cm.
We can't find our picture anywhere and was wondering if you could help us to find more picture of Furse. Would like to know who this man is.
Looking forward to your reply.
We are happy to suplie pictures for you if you want.
Kindly
Anna Roth
