Edward Aistrop was a painter of dog portraits who worked in the latter part of the 19th century. He was amongst a band of artists who fulfilled the demand of wealthy patrons by providing a record of their favourite animals and champions. He painted in a similar style to artists such as Arthur Wardle and John Alfred Wheeler. His skill in painting animals earned him many commissions from pet owners and dog breeders. Many of his works were head studies and portraits often produced on a small scale.
The paintings are housed in new, English made gilt frames which are in excellent condition.
