The dog in this painting is in a state of complete obedience.
It is in a controlled state and at the lowest status class in the whole painting.
I think the purpose of Goya painted these dogs is to show the dog’s lovely, heroic and elegant?
I perfer Lucien Freud’s dog. Because these paintings show the intimate relationship between dogs and people.
Feels the dog in the painting is as important as human.
Also they remind me of my dog.
