The FEBRUARY 15 SESSION AT 1PM(est) is the annual DOGS IN ART auction, coinciding each year with the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Showcased are two centuries of canine paintings and sculpture by some of the genre's most important artists. Included are breed portraits that highlight a breed's characteristics, sporting paintings that illustrate a dog's working abilities, and charming pet portraits.

Certain to attract attention, and a few smiles, is an important pair of paintings from the original 1903 series of dogs playing poker by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge (lot 3687).
