For the eighth consecutive year, Doyle New York will host the Dogs in Art auction to coincide with the Westminster Kennel Club's Annual Dog Show. This popular sale showcases two centuries of canine paintings and sculpture by some the genre's most important artists. Hundreds of art collectors and dog fanciers from across the nation and around the world will vie for breed portraits that highlight a breed's characteristics, sporting paintings that illustrate a dog's working abilities, and charming pet portraits.

A special feature of the 2006 Dogs in Art auction will be the original artwork for the posters from the 2004, 2005 and 2006 Annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Shows. The three works have been consigned by the Westminster Kennel Club and will be sold to benefit two charitable organizations. Sale of the artwork from 2004, a watercolor by Misha Lenn (, will benefit the Animal Medical Center in New York City. Sale of the 2005 artwork, another watercolor by Mr. Lenn, and the 2006 artwork, an oil painting by Bart Forbes ( will benefit Westminster's Angel On A Leash therapy dog program at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of NewYork-Presbyterian.
