Item/Description:   This attractively framed “Dogs Playing Poker” painting is an original, vintage/contemporary (ca 1960s-1990s) interpretation of the timelessly charming classic imagery of artists such as C. M. Coolidge (Cassius Marcellus Coolidge) and Arthur Sarnoff which has so delighted and tickled the funny bones of art lovers and animal enthusiasts alike over the years. 

 

***With a stylishly retro theme, this nostalgically campy pop culture painting humorously depicts three dogs sitting around an old-school style poker table, utterly engrossed in their evening’s entertainment. Two of the dogs resemble St. Bernards, with the third resembling a Sheltie Collie.

 

***The attention to detail is impeccable, with the result being exquisitely charming! It’s difficult to decide which aspect of this unique painting is one’s favorite, given so many choices of entertaining imagery, ranging from the cigar and pipe-smoking dogs, to the pair of Saint Bernards “formally” bedecked in neckties, to the poker ace dog who appears to be ruling the game given his huge amount of chips.

 

***The room in which they play is upscale and elegant (must be a “high stakes” game) ;~), outfitted with artwork on the wall, a traditional overhead lamp, and lush, bordello-red velvet chairs. Either the room, and/or their games, must be getting quite hot, as a couple of the dogs even have old-fashioned, oversized wicker rattan hand-fans "handy" for cooling things down.

 

***The artist has even seen fit to ensure that each playing card suit is artistically represented, with the authenticity of the playing cards themselves being most befitting of the yesteryear era and time period the painting endeavors to portray, and the mood the artist sought to convey is thus successfully evoked.

 

***Highly cross-collectible, this utterly delightful painting runs the gamut of collectibility - from connoisseurs of animals/dogs collectibles & memorabilia, to aficionados of popular culture art & kitsch!

 

***PLEASE NOTE: Flowers are for display purposes only and do not accompany this painting!

 

Artist:   Artist’s name is difficult to decipher. It looks like “Honafi”, “Hunafi”, “Homafi”, “Humafi” (or none of these).

 

Excerpted Research Information About the “Dogs Playing Poker” Art Genre/Series. (attributed to wikipedia.org): “Dogs Playing Poker refers collectively to a series of sixteen oil paintings by C. M. Coolidge, commissioned in 1903 by Brown & Bigelow to advertise cigars. All the paintings in the series feature anthropomorphized dogs, but the nine in which dogs are seated around a card table have become derisively well known in the United States as examples of mainly working-class taste in home decoration. Critic Annette Ferrara describes Dogs Playing Poker as "indelibly burned into ... the American collective-schlock subconscious ... through incessant reproduction on all manner of pop ephemera.”
