Mimi’s paintings are not famous like the ones I am about to show you. I just want you to know that this dog has a backgrround in art.

Henri Matisse

The first painting is by the grrrreat French artist, Matisse. Mimi loves Matisse because his work is full of bright, positive energy without being the least bit sentimental. This pawticular painting is called Interior with a Dog.

Matisse loved color. He also loved dogs.

Sandro Botticelli

The next painting is amazing. It is by Sandro Botticelli, and is in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It was painted between 1480 and 1482, and it shows a boy carrying a little dog that looks like a Chihuahua.  He must love that dog because he has him in a special dog carrier.

Philippe Auguste Renoir

This is a woofy painting by Renoir. It is called Madame Renoir with a Dog. I like it because it shows the artist’s wife with their family dog.
