Dogs & Babies

The dogs in the art of Keith Haring are anthropomorphic: dancing, laughing, ogling, & showing off - -they were on occasion an alter-ego of sorts. Here paired with quotes from Haring’s journals, we can see in these drawings the joy & inspiration he found in his friends. These drawings provide a touching & funny counterpoint to his more monumental work. Born in 1958, by the time Haring came to N.Y. in 1978 to attend the School of Visual Arts, he had developed a style of simple outline drawing that derived from Disney cartoons & the sophisticated “primitivism” of such artists as Pierre Alechinsky & Jean Dubuffet. Swept into the downtown culture of punk & new wave music, he began to translate the street culture of N.Y. into his art. Small format.
Keith Haring loved children & treasured the purity & innocence they embodied. The “radiant baby” was one of his signature images & appeared in many incarnations throughout his work: pregnant women dancing giddily, babies with halo & wings, cradled in their mother’s arms or playing with their dad. Matched with insightful entries from his writings, these joyful drawings continue to entertain, inspire, & provoke.
