Cocker spaniel art has been highly popular in the United States and around the world ever since the early 1920's when these dogs first captured the hearts of audiences in dog shows. Since then, the picturesque grooming and cute appearance of this animal has given rise to framed cocker spaniel art as a diverse category within the field of canine fine art.
Cocker spaniel art originally began in England, where these canines were used for rustling game out of this brush, however, the American cocker spaniel is the most common of this breed to be used for artistic purposes. Because the American breed is considered more elegant and cuter than their English counterparts, who have retained their original sporty look, the American breed is generally seen in dog art. However, both of these types are displayed as being energetic and fun-loving creatures in illustrative dog prints, even though the appearance of these two types and the environs they appear in are depicted differently.
