In reference to…

The Dog by Francisco de Goya y Lucientes.

Wings of a Butterfly is released today, and since I mentioned this painting in the book, I just thought it’d be nice to share a little more about it. Interesting fact: although Goya was deaf while in residence of La Quinta, he was not the Deaf Man the house was known for. The Deaf Man was the previous owner.

I had intended to put up a short excerpt about the painting from Prado’s website, even translated it before realizing there was an English version (c’est la vie) but since that is prohibited (unreasonable IP law, I hate you!),  you’ll have to go to the link direct.

Picture from WikiCommons. (The one at the Prado website is better. Again, damn you, IP law!)
