Sophie Sperlich (1863-1906, German) was a well-known artist in Munich, her home town. Although not much information is available about her, she was a popular artist painting both dogs and cats. Her paintings are in the same style as those of Julius Adam and Henriette Ronner-Knip. Many of her works were used as postcard illustrations. Today her works can still be found at auction. Her painting “The Dachshund” sold at Christie’s for $9,735 in 2007.
