A Friend in Need, 1903

A Friend in Need, 1903

Marcellus Coolidge

Without question, the most recognized gambling paintings ever created are the various renderings of dogs playing poker by Marcellus Coolidge. In fact, surveys have shown these paintings to be among the most recognizable artwork of any type. Coolidge was born in upstate New York and began his career as a druggist and a painter of house numbers and street signs. He also founded a small newspaper called the Antwerp News. In 1903, Coolidge signed a contract with the cigar giant Brown and Bigelow to paint a series of paintings of dogs in many human situations and scenarios. From the entire set of 16, nine of the paintings showed dogs seated around a poker table and enjoying the poker games. The cigar company made copies of the painting and gave them as give-aways. They used the paintings extensively to advertise their cigars and the paintings were a hit among the customers, who loved the novel way in which the dogs were depicted in human scenarios.

Of all Coolidge's dog paintings, "A Friend in Need" is his most famous.  The scene has a surprisingly modern look to it, which may account for its timelessness. Cheating is a focal point, the game is five-card draw.

The painting will be delivered unstreched, rolled in protective & presentable case.
