Sweet paintings by a Dean's artist, AE Kennedy, whose animals are particularly full of personality: two ducks, a St. Bernard puppy, two robins, two guinea pigs and a carrot, a wistful cow, and two lambkins This copy with a lighter and greener sky than the Cope's. Scarce.

Albert Ernest Kennedy (1883 - 1962) was a prolific illustrator of children's animal books from a family involved in the arts. His younger brother Cecil was a noted painter of landscapes and flowers (his grandfather is said to have worked with Corot.) Printed cloth is a rough medium, yet Kennedy's animals all have well defined individual movement and personality.
