Features From My Visit to: The Toledo Museum of Art - A WHITE TERRIER

TMA (Toledo Museum of Art) is one of my favorite places in Toledo, Ohio.  I first visited this beautiful museum when I was in high school in Canada.  I grew up in the Windsor area and I was privileged to go to a high school with an advanced art program.  We actually visited the TMA twice throughout my high school career.  I had no idea when I was a teenager that I would actually marry an American and then settle in the Toledo area!  I now visit my favorite museum once a year.

I will be featuring a few pieces from the TMA each month.

“A White Terrier by a Mossy Bank with Flowers”

By William James Webb (English, 1827-1878)

It almost looks like this artist painted the Terrier at the exact moment when the dog became bored with "sitting like a good dog" and saw something of interest in the distance.  I'm sure that the dog scurried away a second later.

The "English White Terrier" was a dog breed established in 1860 but became extinct by 1895 (when clipping of the ears became outlawed and people's interest disappeared).

William James Webb is a little know painter that had a talent for capturing detail and utter clarity.
