Frank Gillett was a prominent artist and illustrator during the first part of the 20th century. From 1898 to 1908 he worked for London’s Daily Graphic. After that period, he worked as an artist producing paintings and drypoint etchings. According to sources in England, Gillett only produced about 50 drypoints during his career, making his work now scarce.

Gillett was known primarily as a sporting artist, and this scene of a huntsman holding back two eager terriers is typical of the works he produced in that genre. The British Museum has an extensive collection of his art. The prominent London printseller Grosvenor Prints offers a few of his drypoints online.
