Classic dog art falls into four main categories: sporting, breed, portrait, and anthropomorphization, meaning dogs doing things people normally do. Contemporary dog art includes cartoons and artwork created by dogs.
5000 Years of Dog Art History For more than 5000 years, artists have created an extraordinary array of captivating images of the dog - the animal that has enjoyed the closest and most intriguing relationship with man. This beautiful book is lavishly illustrated with works from all over the world, ranging from the earliest African rock paintings to the groundbreaking work of contemporary artists.
It explores the various roles the dog has played in both art and society, including its depiction as a symbol of fidelity and romantic love, as a prized possession, vaunting its owner's power and wealth - as a treasured and loyal pet, as a mythological being, mysteriously travelling between the lands of the living and the dead, as a religious image of purity, or dissolution; and as an indispensable working and hunting companion.
A vividly written text is accompanied by glorious images, featuring many different breeds, that capture the soulful, beguiling and dynamic character of man's best friend in its diverse incarnations, from protector to predator, dark force to deity.
Dog Art History George Stubbs (1724-1806), best known for his paintings of horses, was said to have revolutionized the face of dog art with his vast knowledge and understanding of anatomy.
Queen Victoria was a dog lover. Her mother commissioned Edwin Lanseer (1802-1873) to paint a portrait of Dash, Victoria's Cocker Spaniel, as a present for her seventeenth birthday. Throughout her lifetime, Queen Victoria commissioned many dog portraits. Although artwork featuring dogs goes back centuries before her time, her influence significantly increased the popularity of dog art, especially portraits of pet dogs. Prior to Queen Victoria's time, dogs in paintings had primarily been represented in sporting scenes.
The rise of pet portraits did not diminish the popularity of artwork featuring sporting dogs. John Emms (1843-1912) is one of the most famous painters of sporting dogs. His work commands some of the highest prices from collectors today. When dog owners began breeding show dogs, rather than working dogs, the breed portraits started to emerge. Reuben Binks (1880-1950) was famous for breed portraits and his illustrations documenting dog shows.
Dogs Playing Poker The most famous dog art is the series of paintings of dogs playing poker by C. M. Coolidge, painted in 1903. Coolidge was hired by Brown and Bigelow, an advertising firm, to paint 16 paintings of dogs in human poses. Nine of the paintings depict dogs playing poker. The paintings have found new popularity as calendars, prints and even rugs. In 2005, two paintings from the series "A Bold Bluff" and "Waterloo: Two" were auction at Doyle, fetching $590,400.00. The paintings were only expected to sell for about $30,000-$50,000.
Dog Art Sales Doyle has been holding its annual "Dogs In Art" auction every February since 1998. The auction coincides with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. The Bonhams 24th annual Dog Sale, held on February 14, 2006 set a new international record for dog art sales by bringing in almost $1.7 million. Doyle and Bonhams once held their dog art sales together but split up the events in 2003.
William Second Gallery The William Second Gallery, in New York City, specializes in 19th century dog paintings. They also carry modern dog art. William Second is the world's foremost expert on 19th century dog paintings and has written several books on the subject. The gallery's Web Site contains a wealth of information on dog art and artists.
Dogs In Cartoons Jerry the Troublesome Tyke, first shown in cinemas in 1925, has resurfaced and was shown at the 2005 London Film Festival. The ever popular Betty Boop was originally drawn as a dog. In 1931, she was transformed into a woman, and Pudgy, Betty's dog, was created. Pluto got his start in 1930, and Goofy made his first cameo appearance in Mickey's Revue in 1932. Snoopy of The Peanuts emerged in 1950. Scooby-Doo, a Great Dane, premiered in 1969.
Dogs As Artists While cats hold the claim to fame as artists, artwork created by dogs is becoming a popular fund raising tool for shelters and rescues. Paintings created by dogs and cats have been sold to raise funds for the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS). The Arizona Animal Fair features a Puppy Pawcasso booth, where dogs can paint. Proceeds from the booth go to Saving Animals From Euthanasia (SAFE), a non-profit organization. The Ottawa Humane Society's Annual Eukanuba Wiggle Waggle Walkathon features a similar event called Picasso Puppies.
Canine Art Today Contemporary artwork featuring dogs can be found in all price ranges. While fine art featuring sporting dogs and show breeds is still highly sought after, the gift market has exploded in popularity. Dogs are featured on coffee cups, t-shirts, posters, and calendars. Many loving dog owners still commission artists to paint portraits of their dogs. Even more people are turning to pet photographers and pet portrait studios for pictures of their dogs.

These two dear little creatures are my friends. They are intelligent, loving, comical, and often bored.

6. William Wegman William Wegman is an American artist best known for creating series of creative work involving dogs, primarily his own Wiemaraners, Bobbin, Candy, Flo & Topper in various costumes & poses.

Then on a whim Rafael grabbed a marker & started drawing scenes around Jimmy on the white space behind him. Jimmy brought inspiration & creativity back into Rafael's life & the result has been a phenomenal series of charming and cheeky images chronicling Rafael & Jimmy's relationship and adventures.

Information About Becoming a Dog Artist
Find out what career path can train you to become a dog artist, and discover related job options. Read about the education dog artists need and learn about the potential income and employment projections.
A dog artist is one who specializes in representations of canines, whether through drawing, painting, or computer-aided graphics. An artist who makes his or her career creating dog pictures may work in advertising, as a independent artist, or as an illustrator in a publishing house. The dog artist may prepare an illustration of a dog as part of a marketing campaign or may create a life-size oil painting of a favorite pet.
Artists specializing in creating pictures of dogs may choose to prepare for an art career by obtaining a degree in fine arts for a college or university. The prospective dog artist may also attend a trade school or art institute. Course duration can be a few weeks in length to four or more years to earn a postgraduate degree. Typical classes to prepare for a career in dog art include drawing, oil painting, and graphic illustration.
An artist who pursues a career as a specialist in canine representations must be able to faithfully represent live subjects. Experience in working with various media such as pen and ink, crayons, pastels, and oils helps to provide variety in the finished art.
Career and Economic Outlook
As the Internet becomes more widely used by businesses and individuals, artists of all types, including those who specialize in dog art, are likely to be in demand. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS') predicted growth of 4% for fine arts and 3% for craft arts in the U.S. between 2012 and 2022. Because dog art is specialized, there are fewer positions available. A well-known independent artist can earn the median annual salary among fine artists, estimated as $44,850 by the BLS in May 2012.

DOG vs CAT ART This article proudly presented by WWW.ARTNEWS.COM and Copyright 2016 ARTnews Ltd, N.Y. All rights reserved.
Cat Art vs. Dog Art: A Showdown at the Blanton Museum An upcoming exhibition celebrates our four-legged friends with works by Dieter Roth, Louise Bourgeois, William Wegman, Edward Hopper, Pablo Picasso and more. Edward Hopper and his wife, Jo, spent their summers in South Truro, Massachusetts, on the tip of Cape Cod. Their neighbor was novelist John Dos Passos, whose wife bred Siamese cats. According to Francesca Consagra, a senior curator at the University of Texas at Austin's Blanton Museum of Art, one cat in particular, called Perkins, caught Hopper's eye. Perkins, named after editor Maxwell Perkins became the subject of numerous sketches and studies by Hopper, which carefully depict the docile feline lounging around, stretching, and sleeping.
Hopper is one in a long line of artists dating back to the ancient Egyptians who have been influenced artistically by their four-legged friends. An exhibition opening this summer at the Blanton explores this 33-century-long fascination through more than 150 cat and dog-inspired paintings, sculptures, drawings, and etchings. Titled "In the Company of Cats and Dogs," the show will feature works by such artists as Pablo Picasso, Vasily Kandinsky, William Wegman, Dieter Roth, Francisco de Goya, and Louise Bourgeois.
Curated by Consagra and organized with the help of the university,s Anthrozoology department, the show will delve into the ever-changing dynamic between humans and their cats and dogs. Consagra will divide the works into nine sections, each highlighting one of the various roles animals have played throughout history. These roles include hunters and herders, human protectors, symbols of morality in literature and art, religious and mythological beings, and, of course, pet.
Images of cats and dogs have long represented unsavory traits. Cats have been associated with witchcraft and lasciviousness, while small lap dogs can symbolize laziness or promiscuity. The small dog in Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's 1895 Poster for "L'Artisan moderne," for example, adds to the risqué tone of the scene. The work, which is an advertisement for designer André Marty's home furnishings, riffs on the idea of a doctor making a house call and features an artisan with his toolbox tending to the needs of a bed ridden woman. The dog's wagging tail and suggestive position on the woman's lap intimate that the nature of the craftsman's visit is more for pleasure than it is for business.
An ancient Egyptian panel from the sarcophagus of the scribe Menna will present viewers with one example of how people have ascribed sacred and mythical powers to animals. Etched in the panel is an image of Anubis, the jackal-headed god associated with mummification and passage into the afterlife. Depictions of Anubis often dressed the walls of burial sites, including the tomb of King Tut and the Temple of Ramses II.
The hunting portion of the show celebrates animals for their keen tracking abilities. In John Sargent Noble's idyllic 1881 canvas Otter Hunting ("On the Scent"), a team of hounds flocks to the scent of its assigned prey. Wet from the swim to their target, the dogs obediently dig to retrieve the otter for their hunting party.
Cats, or "biological mouse traps," as Consagra calls them, will also be represented in this section. In Takahashi Hiroaki's 1931 woodblock print Cat Prowling Around a Staked Tomato Plant, a wide-eyed cat stalks its prey. Ready to pounce, the black and white feline maneuvers through a tomato plant, protecting the crop from unwanted visitors.
Otto Dix's 1968 Cat in Moon Landscape features a cat executing a similar task. Nimbly, the cat weaves its body through the long stems of a garden's pink and purple flowers. Its drawn claws and wide, glowing eyes indicate that it's on the prowl.
The final room of the show will be devoted to depictions of cats and dogs as domesticated companions. Among these works will be David Bates's soulful 1983 painting The Whittler. Executed in his trademark cartoonish style, the canvas features a smiling craftsman carving a piece of wood, while his faithful dog sits by his side.
Sandy Skoglund presents an alternate interpretation of pet ownership in her trippy photograph Radioactive Cats. The work depicts an army of futuristic, DayGlo-green cats taking over the sterile, dreary home of an elderly couple. Crawling over the furniture and appliances, the creatures migrate towards the refrigerator, on an apparent mission for food.

ANUBIS IN ART This article is proudly presented by WWW.WIKIPEDIA.COM and WWW.ARTY FACTORY.COM
Anubis was one of the most frequently represented gods in ancient Egyptian art.
In the early dynastic period, he was depicted in animal form, as a black wolf. Anubis's distinctive black color did not represent the coat of real wolves, but it had several symbolic meanings. First it represented "the discolouration of the corpse after its treatment with natron and the smearing of the wrappings with a resinous substance during mummification".
Being the color of the fertile silt of the River Nile, to Egyptians black also symbolized fertility and the possibility of rebirth in the afterlife. Later in the Middle Kingdom Anubis was often portrayed as a wolf-headed human. An extremely rare depiction of him in fully human form was found in the tomb of Ramesses II in Abydos. Anubis is often depicted wearing a ribbon and holding a nekhakha "flail" in the crook of his arm. Another of Anubis's attributes was the Imiut fetish.
In funerary contexts, Anubis is shown either attending to a deceased person's mummy or sitting atop a tomb protecting it. New Kingdom tomb-seals also depict Anubis sitting atop the nine bows that symbolize his domination over the enemies of Egypt. Aside from the Anubis statue discovered in King Tut's tomb, his representation can be found frequently in ancient Egyptian art.
In the Valley of the Kings, an image of Anubis in his role as "Jackal Ruler of the Bows" was often used to seal tombs. The nine bows represented all the enemies of Egypt, and it was believed that Anubis had defeated every one of them. Anubis masks and statuettes dating back to early to late Ptolemaic period (332-30 BC) exist in museums today.
