Louis Godefroy Jadin
(French, 1805 -1882 )

Louis Godefroy Jadin was a sporting artist described in "Le Grand Livre du Chien" as a painter of dogs of the 'haut monde' of the Second Empire and of Napoleon III's hunting packs. He first exhibited at the Salon in 1831, winning medals in 1840 and 1855. As a friend of Alexandre Dumas, he travelled with him on many occasions.

His work is in many European galleries and museums. The Victoria and Albert includes a painting of Greyhounds.
