Artists aren’t the only ones who flock to the Big Apple to make their name at a gallery.

Now 325K+ Instagram followers tune in daily to see what cute outfit or fancy handbag Bertram will pop his adorable head out from as, this fluffy art connoisseur's charming fashion sense and undeniable personality make him one of the biggest pups on the gram.
