Default Historical pictures/art of your breed

Just like the title says - black and white photos, paintings, archival images - anything in history of "your" breed or ones you like =)

A Fila and a jaguar it's taken down...intense...

Kuvaszok in art

Hunting Buffalo

Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.

Stories, Poetry, and Musings

Queen Alexandra with her borzoi, a present from Tzar Nicholas.

Queen Catherine and her dogs. I would NOT be brave enough to hold that many borzoi leashes while walking down stone steps.

Prince Galitzin with his borzois (ahem, Stephy )

Groubian, 1893

Almas, another Perchino dog

Argoss, a Russian import who won a silver medal for wolf hunting, and became the first American champion. He's really really nice, I'd be happy to have a dog with his type.

Have to dig up some more later.

Great idea for a thread Steph. The pictures are very interesting...just to think that people way back then were enjoying dogs similar to what we have today and that our dogs came from those dogs so long ago. Some are very old breeds, such as the Chihuahua. And of course, like most, they've gone through changes to one degree or another. Here are some of my current breed, the Chihuahua.

Alessandro Botticelli (Italian, 1444-1510)

Scenes from the Life of Moses
(c. 1481-1482)
Sistine Chapel, Rome, Italy

Vittore Carpaccio (Italian 1472-1526)

Two Women/ "Two Courtesans" (1510)
Oil on wood
Museo Civico Correr, Venice

A Venetian painter, his life is poorly documented, and it is not known with whom he trained, but it is generally agreed that the chief influence on his work was Gentile Bellini. After two major commissions, Carpaccio's career declined, his work seeming old-fashioned, and he remained virtually forgotten until Ruskin revived his reputation in the 19th century. He is now rated as second only to Giovanni Bellini as the outstanding Venetian painter of his generation.

Western Mexico, Colima State,
200 B.C.-A.D. 300
Colima Dog Effigy -
Ceramic with red slip paint
North Carolina Museum of Art

The animal most frequently depicted in Colima art is the hairless dog, today known as the Chihuahua. In addition to raising dogs as a food source, many peoples of highland Mexico believed that a dog accompanied a person's soul on the journey into the underworld. Discovery of these dog images in tombs suggests they were intended as companions for the deceased.

Pietro Longhi (Italian, 1702 - 1785)

The Concert (1741)
Oil on canvas
Gallerie dell'Accademia, Venice
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty."

Thomas Jefferson

Haughty Madge, Izzie and her look strikingly similar.

There's lots of art, but it's early and I'm supposed to be getting ready for work lol.

I think someone posted a site with breeds categorized and historic photos? Would come in handy here.

Love this one of the pies working cattle. Yes, I would love to have a pied Fila!

PUPPIES!!! So much like Buffy and Kharma, too.

This is the other side of the Fila

Supposedly a long-ago photo of the now extinct Blue Paul, brought here by the Irish and Scots who settled in this region. Interestingly, we have a significant incidence of blue and blue-brindle APBTs in this area, and they're very true to type.

Oh, yes, and once upon a time our military had a REAL mascot breed -- now they're banned from the bases.

Versatile little dogs!

Isn't he? Nothing like the huskies today, but he was such a bear of a little opposed to Togo. And Fritz, who looks way more like modern huskies.

Here's some more I found:

Another of Togo:

Another of Fritz:

Togo and sire. At the left of the photo is Togo's sire (father), Suggen, who was Seppala's racing team leader before World War I.

Togo was a bit of a favorite, as you can see.
