Dachshunds in Art: Patrick Lichfield

Thomas Patrick John Anson, 5th Earl of Lichfield (25 April 1939 – 11 November 2005) was an English photographer and a first cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth II. In his professional practice he was known as Patrick Lichfield. His nice work is currently being featured through June 4th in the UK at a show at the Chris Beetles Gallery in London. Find out more at the Chris Beetles Gallery.
The above photo of Grace Coddington and presumably her red smooth dachshund was taken by Lichfield in Buckinghamshire, March 18th, 1964. Model Grace Coddington won British Vogue’s young model competition at eighteen, and for the next decade lived the life of a cover girl. In 1968, she joined British Vogue as a fashion editor; there she remained until 1987 when Calvin Klein hired her to be his design director. She went to American Vogue the following year and became its creative director in 1995, a position she still holds. Source.
