Goya, lost dog

Head of the dog

Lost in his

Black period.

We all

Loved

And somehow

Understood the symbolism;

We got

The drowning,

The overwhelming

beauty

the majesty,

Of being very, very small

On a canvas designed for ever.

  1. We don’t think of Goya as painting lost dog – not cute, not a lapdog , but loyal, pleading , pining for its human to come back. You could just bring it home.
    A frail life, immortalised.
