Kapstein, Carl Friedrich - Portrait of Two Borzoi Dogs Fine Art Print
A Museum Quality Reproduction of Portrait of Two Borzoi Dogs painted by Carl Friedrich Kapstein in the year 1894. The scene shows two dogs that look like they are actually posing for a portrait. The Borzoi are a graceful, elegant sight hound, which means this dog hunts by sight rather then smell. The breed's tall and lanky build allows them to chase quarry for long distances. They have a long silky coat that can be flat, wavy or curly and may be any color or combination of colors. These elegant dogs were developed by crossing Arabian greyhounds with a thick coated Russian breed, they have been bred by the Russian aristocracy for hundreds of years. They were created to hunt wolves, fox and hare over the open plains of Russia. Until 1936, the Borzoi was known as the Russian Wolfhound in the United States. The original oil on cardboard is 34 by 46 centimeters in size.
