Ling was the name of the  artist's Dalmatian, named after the family's house, Lingard House, in Chiswick.  One of the artist's most popular prints it was originally produced, in 1936, in an edition of 75.

It is generally acknowledged that Austin was one of the greatest exponents of line engraving of the Twentieth century. Campbell Dodgson, keeper of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, who compiled the standard reference work on Austins' work, compared his work to that of Durer noting that Austin had 'more than a touch of that master in him' (Robert Austin, Twenty-One, 1930 Gallery).
