"Marguerite Kirmse, a famous artist specializing in dogs, was born December 14, 1885 in Bournemouth, England. She arrived in the United States in 1910.  During the 1910's, she was doing drawings, pastels and paintings, primarily of dogs. In April of 1921, she did her first etching, titled Brushwood Boy. The etching was done using a victrola needle. Chase, her second etching, was done in the same month. Eventually using diamond-pointed pencils, she went on to create over 250 etchings of dogs representing 26 breeds. Including private commissions, she did over 100 etchings of Scottish Terriers. Pointers, Setters and other field dogs and terriers are included in her portfolio." - Artist's Website
