Dog art collections have been beloved by art lovers everywhere, however the unique look and diversity of afghan hounds have been a special favorite among those who enjoy canine prints. Usually these prints take advantage of the long hair that typifies the northern breed and display them in fashion prints with their human counterparts, as seen in the work 'Afternoon Stroll' by Jocelyne Anderson-Tapp. However, these canines can also be represented in a variety of styles while being a subject of their own. Whether it's a representational depiction such as Lois Virginia Babb's sensitive painting 'Russian Spring' or a pop art creation like 'Afghan Hound in Neutral' by Lucas Lucas, afghan hound prints are a fascinating and diverse form of art for any collectors of dog art or for people who are wanting to add some whimsical style to their interior designs.
Although the long-haired northern breed is the most archetypical look for the afghan breed, there was also another type of afghan hound. These hounds were short-haired, rangy, and were bred in the southern and western desert regions of Afghanistan. As lightly colored as their northern cousins, these types of afghan hounds were equally popular among Afghan hound artists.
