4. Pugs & Their Meaning In Art with Nyassa Hinde

Welcome to the Jo’s Art History Podcast, a podcast which celebrates all things art historical every single day!

On today’s podcast, Jo sits down with Illustrator Nyassa HInde to discuss a topic close to her heart - PUGS!

Yip, that’s right! Today we track the development and representation of this popular little dog through three paintings by artist William Hogarth. Hogarth was a super star painter in the 1700s and was known for his love of the breed but, his inclusion of his pugs were not as innocent as they first seem.

Join Jo and Nyassa as they discuss the history of pug representation, poking fun at the wealthy and just what exactly is pugnacious?
