In this piece of artwork, a bulldog attempts to hit the eight ball in a game of billiards. Various other breeds of dogs, including a Basset Hound and a Great Dane, smoke cigars, drink beer and watch the pool table expectantly. This art spoof print, “The Hustler” by Arthur Sarnoff, is an illustration that was painted in the 1950s. This whimsical and fantastical art print is reminiscent of the time period and plays on slapstick humor.
Consisting of mostly earth tone colors, such as green brown and orange, “The Hustler” would be a great addition to a game room or study with a warm color scheme. If you’re looking for an interesting, funny piece of art to add to your billiards room or home bar, framing “The Hustler” in a brown frame could make a great addition to your home!
