Hondenkop, Julie de Graag, 1920

Hondenkop, Julie de Graag, 1920

The word “Hondenkop” is Dutch for “head of a dog” or “dogface” – and who can resist this face?

A woodblock originally designed by the artist Julie de Graag in 1920, this work can be found in the Rijksmuseum in the Netherlands. Alternatively described “Portrait of a Dog” – you can feel the characteristics of unconditional love, loyalty, and protection through each line of the design.

When printed on kraft cardstock, the combination of black ink on brown convey warmth and depth – a perfect backdrop to messages of support and affection for loyal friends and loved ones.
