This lovely presentation box of 16 notecards would make a charming present for a Dachshund lover. The box contains 4 different designs and features David Hockney's playful paintings of his two dachshunds, Stanley and Boodgie. These sharply observed, affectionate studies are executed swiftly in oils, epitomising the artist's familiar style
In David Hockney's own words:
'From September 1993, I painted and drew my dogs. This took a certain amount of planning, since dogs are generally not interested in Art (I say generally only because I have now come across a singing dog). Food and love dominate their lives.
'I make no apologies for the apparent subject matter. These two dear little creatures are my friends. They are intelligent, loving, comical and often bored. They watch me work; I notice the warm shapes they make together, their sadness and their delights. And, being, Hollyood dogs, they somehow seem to know that a picture is being made.'
Cards are left blank for your own message and come with a cheerful yellow envelope
