Dogs in Pose

from the Antiquity to the Modern day

Saturday October 20th, 2018 / La Venaria Reale

This is the first major exhibition in Italy on the theme of "dogs in art"

presenting sculptures and paintings by some of the greatest artists of all time, from the Antiquity to the modern day.

The theme of the exhibition is the constant presence of the dog in Western figurative arts, long depicted as an accessory motif in great history painting, but also experimented by "animal" painters as a real genre or, further portrayed by versatile artists within other genres, as an autonomous character or within portrait paintings. After the human figure, the dog, a human's friend par excellence, is the animal-character that has been most frequently represented by artists, signifying both an emotional bond and an elective affinity that bypass all formal decorum and overcome all iconographic conventions.
