A Dog's Guide to Art

A homage to modern art--from Whistler to Warhol--with a doggy twist

A light-hearted look at art through canine eyes. Join illustrator Joy Fitzsimmons's two dachshunds, Ned and Henry, as they romp through the gallery with a group of their beloved doggy pals. Watch as the canine gang--including Dalmatians, basset hounds, border collies, and Labradors--really get into art (and spot the doggy additions).

On their way, they encounter Whistler's Mother, Picasso's The Dream, Matisse's The Fall of Icarus, Magritte's Lab, and a dachshund Pollock--all culminating in a doggy version of Campbell's Soup, Warhol's squirrel soup for dogs! This is a homage to modern art with a selection of beloved paintings and playful manipulations to bring them to a new audience.
