Dogs In Art

Coinciding each year with the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Doyle New York's 8th Annual Dogs in Art auction on February 14 will showcase four centuries of canine paintings and sculpture by some of the genre's most important artists. Hundreds of art collectors and dog fanciers from across the nation and around the world will vie for breed portraits that highlight a breed's characteristics, sporting paintings that illustrate a dog's working abilities, and charming pet portraits. Highlighting this year's auction are paintings by such prominent artists as Frederic Remington (lot 3144), Richard Ansdell (lot 3141A), Edmund Henry Osthaus (lots 3140-3143), John Emms (lot 3135), Arthur Wardle (lot 3127), Elias Vonck (lot 3137), Percival Leonard Rosseau (lot 3113), Cassius Marcellus Coolidge (lot 3128), and many others. A feature of the auction will be the original artwork for the 2004, 2005 and 2006 posters of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Shows. The three works have been consigned by the Westminster Kennel Club and will be sold to benefit two charitable organizations. Sale of the artwork from 2004, a watercolor by Misha Lenn (lot 3130), will benefit the Animal Medical Center of New York City. Sale of the 2005 artwork, another watercolor by Lenn (lot 3131), and the 2006 artwork, an oil painting by Bart Forbes (lot 3132), will benefit Westminster's Angel On A Leash therapy dog program at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center.
