Following the success of A Dog a Day, Sally Muir returns with a sea of new, but crucially, old, faces.

Several years ago Sally Muir began a Facebook project, A Dog a Day, posting dog art daily. Through the project she was introduced to endless people and their dogs and the distinct personalities and complex emotions that owners attribute to them. More recently, Sally’s project changed focus slightly to look specifically at portraying older dogs and they are collected here for the first time.

Sally Muir is well known for her portrayal of dogs, with her artwork Elderly Dog featuring in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2018 and Hound following up in the Summer Exhibition in 2019. The popularity of Elderly Dog has fueled Sally’s desire to continue to paint older dogs and celebrate the aging process of our favorite pets in grace and style. From loose sketches and lithographs, to potato prints and oil paintings, Old Dogs includes a range of mediums that Sally has become known for and embraces dogs of all shapes and sizes (big, small, pedigree, cross breed).

Sally Muir’s paintings of dogs are familiar to many and she has exhibited at Royal Academy Summer Exhibition where her prints are also sold, and her dogs feature on crockery at Anthropologie.

’[A Dog a Day is] a handsome collection of Sally Muir’s dog portraiture, it demonstrates the artist’s technical range and her keen understanding of essential doggishness. The images are deft sketches that capture the particular hang of a hound’s head, the Mikado-sticks jumble of lurcher legs or the crazy glint in a spaniel’s eye. Muir’s mastery of the expressive capacity of the canine eye in particular makes these paintings live and pant.’ (Spectator, 2017).

Featuring over 140 original dog artworks.

Sally Muir is based in Bath, UK, and is a prodigious portrait painter of dogs. For years she focused on her knitwear business Muir & Osborne as both a designer and author. With her business partner Joanna Osborne, she has published seven knitting pattern books that include Best in Show and Knit Your Own Dog, and the children’s book Patch’s Grand Dog Show.
