We Think the World of You
New York–based British painter David Remfry (born 1942) has long been fascinated by the relationships that develop between dogs and their owners. In this charming volume, his delicate portraits in watercolor and gouache reveal the mutual understanding and sympathy of these partnerships. Many of the portraits are accompanied by sketches from the artist’s numerous notebooks alongside brief accounts by Remfry of how dog and owner came to find each other. Some of Remfry’s lively watercolors and sketches illustrate celebrities and popular figures such as Ethan Hawke (and Nina), Susan Sarandon (and Penny and Rigby), Alan Cumming (and Honey) and Agnes Gund (and Tina, Giotto and Bronzino); other sitters were Remfry’s fellow residents at the iconic bohemian outpost, the Chelsea Hotel.
