Paw Prints in Art History~


Paw Prints in Art History

Art has captured the soulful, beguiling and dynamic character of man’s best friend in its diverse incarnations, from protector to predator, dark force to deity. The dog has enjoyed the closest and most intriguing relationship with man so much so that for more than 5000 years, artists have created an extraordinary array of captivating images of the dog.

We understand upon exploration the various roles the dog has played in both art and society. These loving canines do double duty as loyal pets and creative muses. A dog depicts the symbol of fidelity and romantic love; as a prized possession, vaunting its owner’s power and wealth; as a loyal pet; as a mythological being, traveling 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.

From war to art, across the spectrum of human endeavor and achievement, there often stands, not only at his side but also at leading the way, man's beloved "best friend."

Throughout the ages, artists have frequently depicted dogs as symbols of positive values such as courage, loyalty, and vigilance. Whether serving as guards, guides, companions, or hunters, dogs have a very strong presence in the great artworks.

They appear in the form of Mesopotamian statuettes of the third millennium BC; they flank peasants in Le Nain’s paintings, or sit loyally at the queen’s side in Rubens’s The Coronation.

They were portrayed as active, accompanying Diana the Huntress, or pampered, as cherished lap dogs nestled on cushions. Each painting or sculpture show in its entirety and in detail, to highlight the canine presence.

Awesome collection !

Thanks a LOT, Ben.

Dogs have come
a long way in history,
long since Descartes
claimed in the 1500's
that dogs were nothing
more than machines,
or work tools,
unthinking and unfeeling.
When we recognize
their enduring qualities,
we realize their
true value
in everything --
in enhancing
the human spirit
of nurture,
devotion and love,
with their ability
to show affection
and loyalty beyond words.
And so what perfect
and better way
to express our great
gratitude at the joy
in having merited
their loving company
than by immortalizing
these friends
in art as well as literature.

Thank you, too, Victoriano...

I am more than
happy to share
with you
and everybody
this personal
tribute to a
long-time companion
who had a life well-loved --
in truth, it is only that
which has given
you sorrow
would be that,
who could
fill your cup
with boundless joy.

There are innumerable
things which
have undeniable value,
and most prime
is the love shared
between a dog
and an individual...
