The Life of the Party
A wirehair fox terrier grabs a doll firmly in its mouth, disturbing the tea party the doll was enjoying. This humorous illustration was a magazine cover from the early 1900's. Created by illustrator Robert Livingston Dickey (1861-1944) His passion for illustration started early as he watched his grandfather etch weapons with animals. He started with dogs and cats but did many other animals like horses. He was a big contributor to publications of the era, such a Life Magazine.
