Dogs & deer with 18C Boys in glorious men's hunting costumes on both sides of the Atlantic



1700 Circle of Mary Beale, William Mackenzie (d 1740), 5th Earl of Seaforth, when a Boy

At the beginning of the 18C, on both sides of the Atlantic, portraits of boys began to depict them in miniature versions of gentlemens' hunting coats, sometimes carrying a bow or spear, often not.  In 3 of these paintings, rather than hunting deer, the young gentlemen have befriended them.  These deer depictions occur in the British American colonies, where deer were much more plentiful, than they were in Mother England.  Faithful dogs stand by their young masters in many of these paintings.
