‘How Happy Could I Be With Either’ (1882)

Medium: oil

Size: 39 x 69 cm

Exhibited: Royal Academy, 1882

This painting measuring 39 by 69 cm, was auctioned at Sotheby’s in Billinghurst, West Sussex on 28 July 1998, fetching £2,070. The picture is reproduced in the auction catalogue.

It was offered for auction again at Bonham’s of Knightsbridge on 12 April 2011, but did not sell.

Athenaeum, 6 May 1882:

It has not a little humour and spirit. It depicts two girls in a garden where a Skye terrier is divided in mind as to whether he will go to one or the other temptress. Behind we have the outside wall of an old house and a garden.
