It’s true, everyone from Andy Warhol to Ernest Hemingway had a beloved pet (or two or three) who inspired their works and acted as their best friends. Some were more obscure (along with Mexican hairless dogs, Frida Kahlo had a fawn, monkeys, parakeets, and many more), while others were loyal pups that followed them to interviews, photoshoots, and appeared in many of their famous works.

Invaluable created a fun infographic on famous artists and their iconic pets and how each served as inspiration for their masterpieces. See how their furry friends brought them life, love, and most importantly, cute subject matter!
