Portrait of a Portrait of a Dog

New to my collection is this carte de visite of a painting perched on an easel. The subject, a dog with eyes blazing, appears to be captured in the joy of the great outdoors. The gent standing next to the painting may be the artist, or perhaps the individual who commissioned a remembrance of his best friend. The photographer’s name, Rintoul & Rockwood of New York City, appears on the back of the mount.
