Canine connoisseur does not sniff at contemporary art

Howard Halle

Every generation has its haters who claim the art world is going to the dogs, but in one case, at least, it’s true: Meet Pickles, a French bulldog who is a regular presence on the art scene. Pickles makes the rounds of shows in Chelsea and elsewhere courtesy of owner Katie Howard, an art adviso who takes photos of Pickles in front of works by Richard SerraKim Gordon and Yayoi Kusama to name just a few, before posting them on her Instagram account, picklebeholding. Besides galleries, Pickles visits art fairs, museums and even artists’ studios. Judging from Howard’s images, Pickles is no doggie dilettante: She seems to be very discerning if eclectic in her tastes, and knows what she likes and doesn’t like. And isn’t that all that really matters when looking at art?
