“There’s a market for everything. Need proof? A painting of dogs playing poker, by little-known American artist Cassius Marcellus Coolidge, was recently purchased at Doyle New York for $193,000.

The painting, ”Only A Pair Of Deuces,” fetched the highest price of the day at the annual “Dogs in Art” auction held on Feb. 12. It had been expected to sell for between $60,000 and $80,000.
