More Information
Images of cats and dogs have long represented unsavory traits. Cats have been associated with witchcraft and lasciviousness, while small lap dogs can symbolize laziness or promiscuity. The small dog in Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's 1895 Poster for “L’Artisan moderne,” for example, adds to the risqué tone of the scene. The work, which is an advertisement for designer André Marty’s home furnishings, riffs on the idea of a doctor making a house call and features an artisan with his toolbox tending to the needs of a bed-ridden woman. The dog’s wagging tail and suggestive position on the woman’s lap intimate that the nature of the craftsman’s visit is more for pleasure than it is for business.
