Described as ‘very friendly if there is plum-cake in the room … keen on hunting, sleepy after it, always proud and contemptuous of other dogs’, Prince Albert’s beloved greyhound Eos stands poised and alert, guarding her master’s possessions. Greyhounds were traditionally associated with court life and also appear in portraits by Titian and Van Dyck.

Commissioned by Queen Victoria and presented to Prince Albert at Christmas 1841
