Philip Reinagle
(Scottish, 1749 -1833 )

Of Hungarian parentage, Philip Reinagle was one of the best of the sporting artists who depicted dogs in late eighteenth century Britain. In Scotland he was a pupil of the celebrated Court painter, Allan Ramsay and in 1769 he travelled to England where he enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools. Early in his career he painted portraits, but soon came to specialise in depicting birds, dogs and horses, often presented in an extensive landscape.

Reinagle is perhaps best known in the world of dog painting for the series of twenty-four paintings executed by him which were engraved by J. Scott for The Sportsman's Cabinet completed between 1803 and 1804. His interest in landscape is evident in these portrayals, a genre that he subsequently concentrated on to the exclusion of animal paintings.

Reinagle exhibited extensively at the Royal Academy, showing some 114 works.
