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.

A4 size (21cm x 29cm ) - £240

A3 size (29cm x 42cm ) - £290


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.

What is Chine-Colle? A piece of Chinese style paper 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.
