Marion Harvey was born in Ayr in 1886. She was an accomplished Scottish artist, who specialized in the portraiture of dogs and horses. Harvey was good friends with Edward Hornel, E.A. Taylor and Jessie M. King, who together became known as the "Close Coterie".
She was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh; the Glasgow Institute and at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool.
Harvey excelled at making these charming images of little terrier dogs - this etching and dry-point of a cute Cairn Terrier dates from around the 1930s. She has certainly caught the very concentrated stare of a little Cairn as he waits attentively for his dinner bowl to be filled - Basil certainly looks at me this way every time I go anywhere near his doggie treats in the kitchen!
This etching is in very nice condition and comes with its original frame, although it would probably benefit from a new mount - but ready to hang on your wall.
