Da Puppy Code:


If Awol Erizku's 2009 photo Lady with a Pitbull looks familiar, maybe that’s because she reminds you of another famous lady in art history holding a cuddly (yet suggestive) creatiure—Leonardo Da Vinci’s Lady With An Ermine, his 1496portrait of the teenaged mistress of Duke Ludovico Sforza, Cecilia Gallerani. 
The photo is part of the Ethiopa-born artist’s upcoming show at Hasted Kraeutler, featuring models he found on the street and online who sat for him in poses reminiscent of the Old Masters.
