MICK CAWSTON 1959 – 2006 was widely thought to be one of the world’s finest dog painters.
He was also a master of anthropomorphic pictures and and humorous country scenes. He had a most amazing relationship with the countryside and its people and they had a great love and admiration for him. His work is comparable to that of John Emms or Maud Earl and he worked equally well in oils, water colours or pastels. No matter what breed of dog he portrayed, the character and likeness of the dog were always superb.
Many of his prints can be seen in ‘Mick Cawston, The Published Works vol 1 and 2. Published by Sally Mitchell.
Many of his works have been reproduced as limited edition prints by Sally Mitchell Fine Arts and can be seen on www.dogart.com . He was a finalist 5 times, in the Fine Art Trade Guild survey for the top selling artist of the year, winning it in 1998 and being runner up shortly before he died.
Mick’s untimely death in 2006 was a great shock to everyone. Mick would have been extremely touched to see how many people mourned his passing. He was a very special person.
