The William Secord Gallery in New York is pleased to present for sale over 60 etchings and original pencil drawings depicting Scottish Terriers by the renowned animal artist, Marguerite Kirmse (1885-1954).
Born in Bournemouth, England in 1885, Kirmse studied both music and art before moving to America where she developed her talent for the visual arts, creating drawings, pastels and oil paintings. Her love of dogs and her artistic talent were a winning combination and by the 1910’s she had established herself as an important canine artist.
Kirmse’s love for the Scottish Terrier was solidified when she met and later married George W. Cole in 1924. Cole was an avid Scottish Terrier fancier and for a time the president of The Scottish Terrier Club of America. Their Tobermory Kennels bred and exhibited many different breeds including Airedales, Irish Terriers, English Setters, Pointers, and of course Scottish Terriers.
