John Emms was born in 1843 into an English artist family. He learned his craft in London in the studio of Frederic Leighton . So he got through his now technically savvy style the chance to design a fresco in the Lynhurst Parish Church. In 1866, he exhibited his work at the Royal Academy, the British Institute and several other high school art schools, such as the Royal Society of British Artists.

Emms himself was an avid hunter, and that's why the many subjects of his paintings are also from here. He mostly painted dogs, individually and in groups of up to 10 animals. His painting style is assigned to realism. Foxhounds that are trained to hunt foxes, terriers and St. Bernards and also horses are often found among his picture subjects. The environment of the animals is also painted in a naturalistic way, so that the beholder can quickly get used to the depictions and assign them to a farm, a landscape or a hunting scene.

His works appealed to the upper classes, which meant that he received private commissions to paint the packs of dogs of some lords and also of the Duke of Newcastle. So it became more and more famous among many dog owners, because it was the time in which wealthy layers like to turn to hunting. And within this clientele, Emms found new customers again and again.

Emms perfected his painting style more and more, so he implemented the fur types of dogs in his pictures in an increasingly talented way. He was often compared with the Venetian painter Francesco Guardi , who lived in the 18th century. His naturalistic depictions quickly fascinate the art world, so his works can also be found in public museums, including the Scottish National Gallery. It may seem interesting that original oil paintings by John Emms are traded today on the international art market at prices ranging from € 170,000 up to one million euros. © Meisterdrucke
