In 1898, Francis Barraud’s painting of his brother’s Jack Russell listening to a Berliner disc gramophone was purchased by The Gramophone Company of London. Almost 120 years later this iconic image is recognised worldwide as the identity of His Master’s Voice and the original sits proudly in the Headquarters of Warner brothers in London. In order to show the work effectively, Academy were commissioned to produce a black picture light throwing light evenly across this celebrated masterpiece. The company are delighted. Nipper looks fantastic attracting as much attention, if not more than at any time in his long career.
