Prazsky Krysarik Painting

Wonderful oil painting of a Prazsky Krysarik in period costume


This is Zita, a Prazsky Krysarik (Prague Ratter), whose owner wanted her painted in period costume. We found out a little about Prazsky Krysariks as this was the first one we ever painted.

Did you know that Prazsky Krysariks originate from the Czech republic and are lively, intelligent, gentle and active dogs.  They are also said to be the smallest breed of dog in the world!

Here is Zita’s photo that her dog artist based the portrait on with her portrait next to it so you can compare. obviously her dog artist had to change the position of her head so Zita is looking straight at you, otherwise it would look a little strange.
