Look at these paintings. They are wonderful, aren’t they? The boys and the girls in these pictures are so beautiful and almost all of them have a dog or a cat. The author of these works is Charles Burton Barber (1845-1894), English artist, one of the best masters of this genre painting. He has become popular due to the portrayal of children with animals. Even the Royal children and their pets were depicted in Barber’s works. All the paintings show the atmosphere of those times: the buildings, furnitures, kid’s clothes and even the air speaks about the past.
