Dogs have been our companions for millennia.
It is thus no surprise that they have also been present in art for thousands of years.
This exhibition includes prints, photographs, drawings, paintings, ceramics and digital illustrations from the 18th to the 21st century taken from the School of Art collections, and loaned from the National Library of Wales, artists and private collections.
On display are works by artists such as William Hogarth and Linley Sambourne, who employed dogs in satire and caricature; Herbert Thomas Dicksee and Sir Edwin Landseer, who created more sentimental images of our four-legged friends; and pieces from contemporary photographers and printmakers such as Steve Bailey and Samantha Boulanger whose dogs have become their muses.
