Illustration of a girl and dog sitting on a dock on a pond with their backs facing the viewer.
The girl and dog image is a painting known as either “Bathing Beauties” or “Pals” and is often attributed to the German artist Elimar Ulrich Bruno Piglhein. Born in Hamburg in 1848, Piglhein studied painting under the tutelage of both Wilhelm Ferdinand Pauwels and Wilhelm von Diez. He later went on to become a professor and honorary associate at the Munich Academy. While Piglhein is not a well known artist outside of the art community, his works still continue to sell at auctions around the world.
