Dogs by Famous Artists
I have been around art ever since I was a puppy. This is because Mimi is an artist. One of my favorite pawsessions is a portrait that she painted of me.
Here it is:
Mimi also painted this of our cat:
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.
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.
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.
Pablo Picasso often experimented with line drawings. He managed to draw a stylish daschund with only one line:
John Everett Millais
John Everett Millais was a Pre Raphaelite painter. This pawticular work is called Effie Deans. It was painted in 1877. The dog looks like a friendly one, don’t you think?
Keith Haring is a contemporary artist, well known for his modern dog paintings. Are these dogs barking at each other? It’s hard to say.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing these dogs by famous artists. The art world is full of wonderful dogs!
Until next Time,
