Love this book. Bought for my wife and she loves it. If you want to buy a dog art book and you only want one buy this one. The author has produced others but I think this is the best and most up to date.

This is a beautiful book. I have only had so much time to look at it, but have enjoyed it very much and keep going to different breeds each time I open it.

I like looking at collections of paintings and these pictures are beautifully reproduced and obviously carefully chosen. The text is interesting and at times thought provoking without being too "highbrow". Relating the pictures and text to a history of a number of dog breeds showing how they developed made the book a bit different. It's a big, bulky book but its expensive in this economic climate even if you're interested in paintings and dogs.

Wonderful! 6 April 2009
By Susan Ewing - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Get a head start on your Christmas shopping, and buy this book for your favorite dog lover! Buy one for yourself, too! Over 525 prints of magnificent art featuring many different breeds. Hounds and terriers predominate, but there are lots of toy and working breeds as well...even two pictures of my breed, the Corgi! William Secord's commentary is wonderful, dealing with the art, the artists, and the breeds. My only complaint is that it's too large to hold...no reading in bed with this book! Of course, any smaller and the artwork would shrink. It's worth the inconvenience. Honestly, I can't say enough good about this book. I love it.

A 'must' for any arts collection 17 Nov 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Dog Painting: A History of the Dog in Art packs in color photos of dog paintings to accompany a history of U.K. and America's 'golden age' of dog paintings. From the dog's role in continental art to the influence of social and political forces in dog portraits, DOG PAINTING offers a survey of a variety of breeds, considers show and working dogs alike, and provides plenty of dog information along with artistic commentary. A 'must' for any arts collection.

doggone wonderful! 12 July 2009
By Stefani Woodams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is an excellent presentation of both dog art and dog history. As a 50 year fan of all things canine I have enjoyed this book. I am also an animal artist so I can admire all the work of other artists from years ago.

A great gift for someone who really likes dogs from Great Britain.

As good as it gets. 31 May 2009
By Roy A. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mr. Secord has done it again. Every page is a masterpiece, truly. A treat for the eyes and the mind. You do not have to be an art aficionado to enjoy and appreciate this book. Or even a dog lover. (But of course that helps!) It is both uplifting and educational. Quite a combination. Costly? Well, it's more than the average book, true. But worth every penny, and then some. Masterpieces never come cheap.

Beautiful publication 18 Dec 2013
By Linda Deutsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have Mr. Secord's 3 previous books and have visited his gallery in NYC. He truly is a world renown authority! This 2009 book is an update & expanded version of his 1992 book with additional text and it has increased images from 155 color & 342 B&W (1992) to 543 all color plates (2009). While all 4 are wonderful resources this edition is clearly the epitome of those published to date.
