A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

This week Art Critic, Estelle Lovatt, comes back to chat about the landmark art collection in The Wallace Museum - Portraits of Dogs: the faithful and the fearless. We chat about why this collection spanning 300 years truly captures the essence of living with dogs and their role as man’s best friend. Estelle discusses the importance of art, before the camera as being our source of history and why the works selected resonate. From Lucien Freud, Gainsborough, Stubbs, to Hockney, De Vinci, and Sir Edwin Landseer - the collection reflects the way dogs capture our hearts. From symbols of loyalty, faithfulness, fearlessness, to just being our stead fast companions.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?


They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.

She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.

It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
