For most of us, a dog is a best friend, a family member, and a beautiful work of art. Well, some talented artists took that last part literally and reimagined famous works of art with dogs. You wish Art History class had been this interesting!
1. Pup With A Pearl Earring
Johannes Vermeer’s oil classic is on the left, but we have a feeling you now prefer the beauty on the right.
2. Van Gogh Self-Puptrait 1887
One of Vincent Van Gogh’s many self-portraits — but this time, recreated with a handsome dog.
We assume the piece on the right is also a self-portrait…that the dog painted himself. Pretty impressive stuff, you guys.
3. The Mona Lisa/Bowna Lisa
Six-year-old Maltese-Poodle Bowie loves the outdoors, playing in the dog park, and — of course — posing for renditions of famous works of art. He recently sat for his owner’s sister, painter Rebecca Eichten, and she painted the Bowie version of the Mona Lisa or, more accurately, the Bowna Lisa.
4. Woofler’s Mother
From now on, anytime you see James McNeill Whistler’s renowned rendering of his mother, you’ll think fondly of the dog on the right.
5. Rich Aristocrat Pup
