Lovers of All
We like to think of dogs as equal opportunity pals, they like people of all walks of life. However the images below do show us clearly the bond that develops between a man and his dog – or in some cases, an artist and their dog.
Many modern artists (of both male & female persuasion) use animals as the core of their art, honing and perfecting each bit of muscle & hair. It’s interesting to guess which of these artists loved dogs & which ones painted them only because they were being paid to. Many of these are portraits of wealthy individuals and their animals were used to say something about them for posterity.
