I was at the Boston Museum of Fine
about Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt and Vermeer. I
wasn’t really using my Prado
algorithm for seeing too much art, where I look carefully only
at the pictures with dogs in them. But I couldn’t help noticing
the dogs. There weren’t many in the formal portraits, but the
family pictures and landscapes mostly did have dogs.
There was an album
of watercolors, which was of course open only to whatever page
the curator had picked, but it had a sign that you could see more
on the website. So when I looked, my favorite dog was the one above.
One thought on “A good dog that didn’t make the exhibition”
My favorite Ducth painting af a dog is in the perminent collection of the MFA, it shows some people in St Bavos cathederal and a dog peeing on one of the pillars. The Dutch love their dogs, and the are welcomed everywhere, but I doubt if the approve of the behavior of the dog mentioned above.
