This is the previously untold story of man's best friends as the real brains behind some of our best-loved paintings. Learn how one of Gainsborough's most famous portraits was nearly ruined by a pack of unruly hounds, and discover the canine story behind the inspiration for Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers'.
With wonderfully irreverent illustrations and hilarious "shaggy dog" tales the whole world of canine art is laid- or buried - before us. From the Old Masters and Impressionists to the Moderns; from Caravaggio to Cezanne, and from Whistler to Warhol, our favourite artists are given the doggie treatment.
