Long Island Museum

Stony Brook, NY

Long Islanders love dogs.  Just like today, anyone observing daily life on Long Island in the 19th century will find that dogs were an important part of the regions culture.  Dog Days combines paintings from artists William Moore Davis, Evelina Mount and William Sidney Mount with advertising, clothing and photographs to offer glimpses into the lives of Long Island’s dogs at work, play and rest.
