Arty Dogs

From the Publisher...

This delightful companion volume to Arty Cats offers wonderfully witty stories of the pups that impassioned and inspired the masterpieces of the world's greatest painters.

A little-known fact about Whistler's Mother, for example: the painter actually captured his mum in the midst of a game of fetch with her beloved dalmatian, Sparky. What motivated Edvard Munch's Jealousy? The touching tale of a loyal old hound replaced by the gift of a young puppy. And, for those wondering about the unusual perspective of Eduard Manet's Un Bar Aux Folies-Bergere, here, at last, is the explanation: the Frenchman's little bulldog, Harry.

In this clever parody of some of history's most famous images, readers meet dogs of all breeds (and all manner of breeding) that stole the hearts, captivated the models, and sometimes saved the reputations of their masters. From formal portraits to pop art, impressionists to expressionists, these whimsical works prove that the dog is truly art's best friend.
