Welcome to the 

Guinea Pigs in Historical Art Museum 

Historical Paintings & Drawings

 

From the 1500s through early 20th century, see master painters and folk artists use the guinea pig as the main subject or ornamentation.  Guinea pigs were believed to have been introduced to Europe between the 1550s and 1580s and quickly became subjects for painters.

The art gallery below is arranged by artist name.  Click for a link to high resolution view of this artist's works (and to help find any non-obvious guinea pigs).  Or jump to the Catalogue.

 

Trust me, the guinea pigs are indeed there!  And usually, they're eating!  

This gallery is a work in progress and continually updated.   Check back often for more!  To follow new additions on social media join the companion facebook group right here!
