Custom Dog Portraits by Basia Lautman

The Art Hound team are delighted to work with Contemporary artist Basia Lautman on offering custom dog portraits of your beloved pooch. Her work and dog portraits have been exhibited many times at the Royal Academy of Art, with editions of her work selling out. 

Your unique portrait is totally bespoke, and available as either an original pastel drawing or as an original drypoint etching with hand painted chine-colle as part of an edition. This highly technical and labour intensive process of print making is rarely used for custom work.

The Process

Basia works from a selection of photographs, not just one, and your information about your dog's  habits to insure she captures the unique personality of each dog. Also discussed is any colours or requests you have about the piece.

Basia will then create several sketches and ideas before the finished work. 


Unique original pastel drawing. You can request your dog to be drawn in any environment from a funky patterned background to a reference photo of their favourite place to go walkies!

A4 size (21cm x 29cm ) - £240

A3 size (29cm x 42cm ) - £290


Drypoint Etching with Chine - Colle

Drawn directly onto the plate, these drypoint etchings retain all the qualities of a drawing in a print, coloured with Chine-Colle, a of Chinese style paper which is hand painted and used as a background for the drypoint etching. This means the work is part painting, part print - each one totally unique.

Small/Medium Drypoint Etching - £650

Large Drypoint Etching - £950

Please note sizes are dependent on dog/ideas and works will be part of an edition.


Big event coming up - like your wedding? Scared of receiving toasters, carriage clocks and bungee jump experiences? Got everything for your house - all apart from some cool, cutting edge, investment grade artwork by the world’s top artists?

The Art Hound Gallery offer a wedding list for the couple who would rather art than a dinner service, or have ever dreamt of a Damien Hirst for a new home. The couple have a personal complimentary art consultation in the gallery or in their own home to choose their special artworks, with a focus on future investment and interior design. The wedding list is then set up to allow guests to purchase or part purchase works, or to buy Art Hound gift vouchers. After the wedding, The Art Hound will even install the art in the newlywed home! 


The Art Hound Gallery are able to provide special commissions or installations from our internationally acclaimed contemporary artists for weddings and wedding gifts. From large scale neon artworks from Lauren Baker which can be used as a wedding installation, then placed in the newly weds home, to special personalised wedding stationery and artwork by Urban Artist Alan Rogerson, we work with the couple to create and source artwork for their big day - which will be kept and displayed forever. 


Not only does Lauren have a large variety of prints suited to your special day, but she is also available for commission for neon and light installations.


Alan can not only be commissioned to create hand cut and painted murals (Check out the outside of our gallery for some inspo!) but is also available to create hand carved linocuts with the couples initials.
