Original works of art

Frederick Thomas Daws
(English, 1878 1950 )

Born in 1878, Daws found his true vocation early in life, exhibiting his paintings, "Companions in Trouble," at the Royal Academy at the young age of eighteen. In 1896, and in 1897 he had two others accepted. Like Binks, Daws painted many of prize dogs of well known dog fanciers. Perhaps best known among them was Mrs. Campbell-Inglis, for whom he completed many portraits of her famous poodles over a period of some twenty years.

F. T. Daws also worked in bronze and many of his models were reproduced in porcelain. He was a master of canine anatomy, and his bronzes, while little known, are important records of top-winning show dogs. In 1930 he became the main artist at the Royal Doulton Works for their Champion Dog Models. His paintings were also reproduced on a series of thirty-six postcards, produced for Spratts Dog Food Company.
