Dogs Playing Poker is part of a series of paintingsby Cassius Marcellus Coolidge in 1894. The original purpose was for a cigar advertisement. This series of Kitsch artworks by Coolidge are part of a 18 piece collection created in the 1890s. All the artworks depict Five or Six dogs of various breeds playing pool or cards together. Over the years Coolidges' work has inspired a number of similar collections by other Artists.

Prior to creating his famous series Coolidge did not have a well known reputation. He wrote once that he was inspired by other Artists of his era including Cézanne and Caravaggio. And while Coolidge did not receive a great deal of publicity during his life his artworks did become popular and quite valuable in later years. One of them sold at Doyle New York's annual Dogs in Art Auction for a staggering $590,400.

Also available in 12"x18" Mini LED variant, see below.
