A depiction of a lemon and white water spaniel belonging to Charles Anderson Pelham (1749–1823), 1st Baron Yarborough, painted by one of the greatest English horse painters. George Stubbs was fascinated by wild animals and a number of fine works exist of rare animals. During his move to Lincolnshire by 1758, Stubbs worked for Charles Anderson Pelham at Brocklesby on two occasions. The dog is most likely to be a mongrel, not a pure breed.
