Pugs, art, and a historical flair
A fun way to bring the fun of pug décor and classical elegance into your home
I have a warm and fuzzy place in my heart for this breed; I have three Pugs, and they’re definitely family. They’re as important to me as if they came from royalty. So Pug artwork is what I have hanging in my home. If you’re a lover of Pugs, art is a great way to express it, and you’ll love these Pug art prints, too.
This sweet little girl just couldn’t keep her tongue in her mouth, but that makes her all the more adorable. My painting was inspired by an original painting by a 17th century artist, Diego Velazquez, of the Infanta Maria Teresa. It seems like it might have been a little harder to actually stuff a Pug into that dress, but she looks just as cute.
Our Pug, the picture of loveliness, Mabeline...
Our primadonna Mabeline felt that this was a good place to make an appearance at Old World Pet Portraits. Clearly, she’s a beauty, but she is convinced that she’s the spittin’ image of Princess Grace of Monaco. We do see the resemblance. Mabeline was the winner of the Green Mountain Pug Rescue annual Pug Social Beauty contest several years ago. There was stiff competition, but she emerged the victor. She does not let us forget this, and feels that she herself is Pug artwork.
My Pug assistant, Bogus Bunsen Bean always enjoys packaging up Pug art prints the most. Oh, he dutifully seals all of the small print and magnet envelopes, but he has a happy gleam in his eye when he knows something is heading off to a Pug lover.
