Perro semihundido

“Perro semihundido” (“The Half-Submerged Dog” also known as “The Dog”), mural painting by Fransisco Goya, 131 cm x 79 cm, between 1819 and 1823.

In a piece he wrote for The Guardian in 2003, art critic Robert Hughes (1938-2012) commented Goya’s painting, and described the inscrutable dog’s head, the lonely pooch gazing over the rim of the world, looking (one presumes) for its vanished master, as mankind might look for its vanished God.
