Celebrate the Year of the Dog with Canine-Themed Art

Launch Slideshow

This Chinese New Year, starting 16 February, rings in the Year of the Dog, one of the twelve animals represented on the Chinese zodiac. In celebration of the holiday – and one of art's greatest muses – we've rounded up dog-inspired lots in upcoming sales and favourite past highlights (including this exotic painting of a Mexican Xoloitzcuintli, pictured here with a modern-day namesake). Click ahead for a closer look.
