John Martin Tracy (American, 1843-1893) oil on canvas of a German short hair pointer on point. Signed lower right "J. M. Tracy." Sight – 13 1/4" H x 18 1/2" W. Framed – 20 1/8" H x 27 1/8" W. Biography (courtesy of AskArt): J.M. Tracy was born near Rochester, Ohio, in 1843 and fought in the 19th Illinois Infantry during the Civil War. After discharge he attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. On his return to the United States, he struck out for California and painted the scenery there. Between 1872 and 1873 Tracy had a studio in Chicago, but in the latter year he went again to Paris. When he returned to the United States he opened a portrait studio in St. Louis, but perhaps feeling the effects of the daguerreotype, he moved to Greenwich, Connecticut in 1881 and began to paint sporting subjects. He was often called upon to do portraits of dogs. Suffering from a lingering illness, he moved to the milder climate of Ocean Springs, Mississippi, in the late 1880s or early 90s. He died there at the age of 49. Condition: Overall good condition. Canvas glued down to masonite board. 1 1/2" hole repair above center of dog's back.
