Artwork Title: Great Dane

Great Dane, 1976

Andy Warhol

Warhol's manager Fred Hughes had the idea that Warhol should exhibit an entire series of cat and dog paintings and drawings. Warhol liked the idea ... At first he painted a number of stuffed animals – their being easier to paint from life – including his other dog, a stuffed Great Dane called Cecil which used to stand "near the bulletproof door at 860 Broadway [and make] messengers jump".
