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.
