We Chat With Artist Eric Ginsburg About His Fine-Art Dog Paintings

Eric Ginsburg paints portraits of dogs. The New York-based artist’s humanistic approach to art has recently been honored with the Pet Portraits exhibition, curated in tandem with Dorfman Projects, which showcases his twist on the notion of the traditional Renaissance portrait. (Charitably, a percentage of all profits from the exhibition goes to benefit the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons.)

After the exhibition opened last week, I called up Eric to talk about his artwork. What became most apparent during our conversation was his natural love and enthusiasm for canine companions, whether talking about his own childhood dog, Skye, who kickstarted his pet portraiture career, or the way he attempts to capture the essence of the dogs he’s been commissioned to paint.

We chatted with Eric explaining his thoughtful take on the field of pet portraiture.

Dogster: When did you first begin painting portraits of dogs?

Eric Ginsburg: It was in college. I grew up with dogs my entire life; I feel that they’re always there for you no matter what. I was being asked to undertake a project about painting your childhood. My teacher at the time asked us to bring in a picture from our childhood and I brought in one of my dog, for some reason. That’s kinda how it started. Then I began to paint a bunch of dogs for people. Instead of painting people or buildings, I find dogs are so kind and so free and so loving. There’s something about them that makes me so happy.

Who was the childhood dog you painted?

Her name was Skye and she was a Corgi. She was just the sweetest dog in the world. I was happy with her and even now, if I’m having a moment, it still feels like she is with me. Sheer love is probably the best way I would put the feeling.
