A propos of nothing at all, I send you some dog paintings that I have enjoyed.
It's worth noting that among the artists below are some with whom you wouldn't normally associate animal portraits.
Think about enlisting a dog in your next painting.
|Sir Alfred Munnings (1878-1959) A Pit Bull named Weller|
|Francois Bard (1959- ) Paulette, 2007|
|George Stubbs ( 1724-1806 ), A Foxhound, 1792|
Next is my late dog, named George Stubbs, R.A., but just Stubbs for short-----at 4 months.
|Donald Jurney, George Stubbs, R.A., 1989|
|Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899) Brizo, a Shepherd's Dog|
