This is one of the most famous paintings of the late nineteenth century by English artist Francis Barraud and depicts his dog Nipper looking into an early gramophone. This image would go on to become one of the most world's most recognized trademarks. This work helped popularize early sound recording and gave Barraud international fame and regard, which helped establish his career as an influential corporate artist who would shape the style and aesthetic of the form for the next century.
Barraud would later say of his inspiration for His Master's Voice:
"It is difficult to say how the idea came to me beyond the fact that it suddenly occurred to me that to have my dog listening to the phonograph, with an intelligent and rather puzzled expression, and call it His Master's Voice would make an excellent subject. We had a phonograph, and I often noticed how puzzled he was to make out where the voice came from. It was certainly the happiest thought I ever had."
Barraud would never match the success of this work, though it remains one of the most iconic pieces of corporate art and an iconic piece of both art and recording history that links the viewer to the past while displaying the evolution of recording and developments made in the latter portions of the nineteenth century. The image would become a symbol of quality and excellence under the Victor Talking Machine Company and later RCA Victor, which became an industry leader.
