For your weekly dose of whimsy, I’ve honed in on the magic of dogs in works of art. My camera roll is full of photos of my dog, Genevieve. And I feel like these pieces are the equivalent of that adoration…on a much bigger scale.
Here are some essential works of dogs depicted by artists.
Yoshitomo Nara is a renowned Japanese artist known for his distinct style and his captivating portrayals of dogs in his artworks. His famous works with this little white dog are interpreted as a quirky representation of innocence.
David Hockney is celebrated for his diverse body of work which includes paintings, drawings, prints, and photography. While not exclusively focused on dogs, Hockney has painted his beloved dachshunds, Stanley and Boodgie, in several adorable artworks, showcasing his affection for these loyal companions.
My favorite aspect of his paintings is the little pink bellies he paints on the dogs.
Lump was Picasso's beloved Dachshund, who became his muse and often accompanied him in his studio. Picasso's connection with Lump inspired him to create art as a tribute to his cherished companion.
William Wegman is an American artist known for his playful and silly works featuring sleek, grey Weimaraner dogs. His art includes photography, video, drawing, and painting. Wegman's unique approach involves collaborating with his own dogs, named Man Ray and Fay Ray, to create whimsical (honestly a little spooky sometimes) and imaginative compositions.
