Exhibition Period 1836 – 1875
He was born and worked in London
He was a painter of dogs, especially terriers chasing birds, cats of mice. In addition, he painted landscapes, game birds and other wild animals. These he painted mainly in oils, although he was an excellent pencil sketcher and water-colourist.
In his time, his work was often mistaken and sometimes passed off as those that had been painted by Landseer. Also many of his works were sought after by engravers to work with. For example, his paintings ‘Three Against a Fox’, ‘The Country Life’, and ‘For Always’ were engraved by Tomkins, ‘The First Lesson’ was engraved by Bateman and ‘The Experience’ by T. Lucas.
His work was, and still is, copied by many other artists and animal painters, but the quality that was Armfield shines out like a beacon.
He changed his name from George Armfield Smith to George Armfield in 1840
George had 3 relatives who also painted dogs; Edward Armfield who painted terriers, Emily who also painted terriers in barn and landscape scenes and his brother, William Armfield Smith
