Glossy Dogs from Phaidon

World famous Phaidon Press releases a new photobook devoted to the Dog.
With the current crop of coffee table Dog books tending to be more along the lines of studio shot wonder mutts or retouched moody pooch portraits – it is refreshing to have a new title that mines gems from turn of the century photographs. This book was compiled by National Arts Club – Photographic Chair Catherine Johnson and is made up of predominantly anonymous snap shots and family photos. But throughout each shot there is a common thread of the love shared between man and his best friend. Ranging from the humorous to tear jerking each of these seemingly mundane shots have a glimmer of sophisticated insight into the relationship we have with our dogs. This book is newly available from Phaidon directly for £9.95.


Painter Nathan Janes offers a new line of Dog themed Pop Art lithos

With the recent record breaking sale ($842,250.00) of a John Emms oil painting “New Forest Foxhounds” dog portraiture and dog themed art are all the rage in the art world. The dog-art auction gauntlet was throw down back in 2005 with the then record setting sale ($590,400.00) of the low-brow classic ‘Dogs Playing Poker’. What is an avid dog-fanatic/art collector to do if they don’t have a spare half million to drop on works of collectible canine curio? Check out the iconic and bold works of pop artist Nathan Janes. Janes offers an excellent catalog of his most popular paintings available as canvas reprints ranging in price from $475-$675. If you fancy your pooch as the Edie Sedgwick to his Warhol – you can commission a Pop Arf portrait starting at $5000.00. That works out to a small price to pay for a pop art interpretation of your modelic mongrel muse.
