Today"I’s Breeder Art Goes to the Dogs
"How the breeds have changed over time is especially interesting to modern-day breeders and collectors of dog paintings," says William Secord, president of the William Secord Gallery Inc., New York. “Identifiable specimens of many breeds go back hundreds of years, especially the Mastiff and the Greyhound. Written breed standards were developed in the mid-to-late 19th century, and even then only for a handful of breeds. They were formalized with the establishment of The Kennel Club in 1870 and The American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1884."
