Kennel Club announces artwork deal

4sight signs an agreement with State of the Art Reproductions.

Dog lovers can now buy realistic oil portraits of their own pets, or reproductions of classic works of art, under the Kennel Club brand.

State of the Art specialises in quality prints and reproductions of oil paintings. Under the agreement brokered by 4sight, these services will be available to people who want their own versions of paintings from the Kennel Club’s art gallery - home to the largest collection of dog paintings in Europe.

State of the Art Reproductions MD Andrew Valentine said: "We believe our ability to create oil paintings from private photographs will be very successful, producing a permanent and memorable record of much loved pets. We strongly believe in the aims and objectives of the Kennel Club, and we hope this agreement will help to support the work that they do."

For the Kennel Club, this latest agreement adds to categories including digital, dog breeding and accessories, branded pet tags, publishing, greetings, collectables, prints and canvasses, home furnishings and stickers.

"This agreement very much reflects the prestige and quality of the Kennel Club brand and allows dog lovers to enjoy some of the world’s finest examples of dog paintings in their own home," said Sandra Vauthier-Cellier, MD of 4sight Licensing Solutions and 4Kids Entertainment International.
