Nigel Hemming is a British artist, specialising in animal portraits and artwork.

He was born in 1957 in Staffordshire. Initially a painter of birds, it was his paintings of dogs which became the more famous.[1]

He has been described as "one of the UKs most famous canine artists"[1] and one of the most successful.[2]

I bought it in a charity shop in the Islington Area.

On the painting is written Nigel Hemming 86. On the back of the frame, there is a stamp of where the paint was framed.

It was framed in the 1st Floor Gallery Picture Framing. I already contacted them, but the lady with whom I spoke said to me that is difficult to assess whether the painting is a print or not, without having seen it herself without the frame.

Ana also suggested me to look at the painting with a magnifier, for being able to see the brush strokes. I feel I can see it, but I am not 100% sure.

Can you please tell me, whether this water colour painting, is authentic or a print?

It is most likely a print - since it is available as a print:

The size is not the same as yours, but if your size is in centimeters, and being the measurement inside the mat, that might account for the difference.

You should look behind the mat for the printed text "Washington Green Publishing Company BIRMINGHAM c. 1986".


I recommend the Art forum at BidtoArt.com

I am webmaster on this - it is NOT my site: Art Talk - American Art in 200 years

Viteato. you are absolutely right, it is a print. I followed your instructions, and I found where it had been printed. It was printed in the same place as in the link you sent to me.

Washington Green Publishing Company BIRMINGHAM c. 1986"

Many thanks once again. I am delighted to know what do I actually have.
