This painting was Remington’s wedding gift to his close friends Louis and Lulu Brown. The imagery began with a bit of drama as the owner’s prized English Setter had to be sent to Remington’s New Rochelle studio and this proved difficult. At the time, New York State held stringent rules about transporting animals via public transportation. Still, arrangements were finally made and Brown’s setter was able to pose for posterity, in this lasting portrait completed by Frederic Remington.
