Women and Pets in Art

Four representations of women and dogs or cats in art from 1820 to 2004.

I have been very busy putting the final touches to the second round of substantive edits on my book.

So in lieu of a science post, I thought I would share with you these representations of women and dogs or cats in art that I found when browsing the online catalogue of the Art Institute of Chicago.

It's like an online visit to an art gallery.

The photo above shows Woman with Shamisen and Cat by Yashima Gakutei.

The three below are not in the public domain so you will have to click the links to see them.

I love Woman with dog by German artist Katharina Fritsch.

Also Woman with a dog by Marie Laurencin.

And the last one is Standing Woman with Cats by Alexander Calder.



I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have.

Happy New Year!
