Art of the Early Baroque …

… plays a role in It’s A Wonderful Woof, the Chet and Bernie Christmas/holiday  novel coming after Tender Is The Bite. This sixteenth-century painter – Jacopo Bassano – was a predecessor of the painter important to the story, who shall remain nameless here – loved to paint members of the nation within.

    I wonder if the artwork displayed below would qualify as art of the later baroque?

    Greetings all!
    WATP, mom grew up with two of those. Her mother hated them so made papa keep them in the den. We thought they were pretty cute. It will be interesting to see how dog paintings come into the new C&B.

    The Bassano painting is beautiful!

    WATP: You are making me laugh! Classic art of 50-60’s basement/rec room photos. Wonder if it is painted on velvet… :^)

    Good afternoon to all!

    Birds!…My friend made 2 new bird feeders out of her lovely candle holders that hang outside. Instead of candles in there she put down some cardboard and glued it together…sniff!sniff!…then tied the doors open and put birdseed in them…. So far the birds have not figured it out and are fighting over one bird feeder nearby….grunt!

    The Met Museum has put out some books of art from their collection that is inspired by dogs. Also a book of cat art. I have the dog one around somewhere. It runs from beautiful to amusing to what was the artist thinking.

    Coolidge did 16 of those dogs, several playing cards and one playing pool. The originals fetch big bucks.

    Gerrit Dou did a painting of a sleeping dog by a terracotta jug. The dog is all white with one black ear. A mirror of Chet.

    The very famous painting of the Infanta by Velázquez has a dog in the foreground that most people overlook, likely because of the self-portrait conceit.

    I rather like Banksy’s “You Complete Me.”
