Edwin Landseer began his artistic career depicting dogs. Here, a group of dogs sit around a table, listening intently to a judge, a large French poodle, who points to a page in a book. It has been said that Landseer painted this scene after dining at the house of his friend Count d’Orsay who owned a French poodle who Landseer thought “would make a capital Lord Chancellor.”
