Rufus is two years old in this oil painting and belongs to a breed quite rare in the UK, being a Cirneco Del Etna. The breed was probably brought to Sicily between 2000 and 3000 years ago by Phoenician traders active in the Mediterranean area. Named after the volcanic mountain on Sicily the breed is a smaller version of the Pharaoh hound, regarded as primitive, and is very short haired, highly intelligent and with all senses very well developed, but especially the sense of smell. His hearing is also very acute and note the way in which his left ear is cocked and in listening mode.
This oil painting measures 23" x 17" (approx) over the frame, which is provided free and is fitted and ready for hanging. It was produced almost entirely using the glazing technique.
