Hilarious Dog Portraits of Famous People in History by David Imlay


David Imlay’s approach to painting draws influence from twentieth century American Contemporary Realism as well as Photorealism which both emerged in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.

It is David’s hilarious dog portraits based on famous portraits by other artists, however, that caught our eye and brought a smile to our face.  Our mascot Fido is a pretty big fan too…
