Afghan Hound Illustration by Lucy Dawson
Lucy Dawson, also known as “mac,” was a preeminent illustrator of the 1930's-40's and her prints have become much sought after by discerning collectors and animal lovers. Lucy Dawson was best known for her series of dog postcards, sketches and books for the publisher Valentine's and Sons. She worked in pencil, pen, ink and oil, but was mainly known for her work in pastels. Her pastel portraits are simple, focusing upon the dog either seated or lying down. There is little clutter in the background which keeps the focus upon her canine subjects. Her cat cards and prints are much scarcer.
