9. A fine painting of a crouching gold Pekingese dog
ink and pigment on paper
Dimensions: 16" x 9" (40.5 x 23cm)
The puppy crouched in play, a mischievous, almost human expression on his face, is executed in minute brushstrokes, expressing the texture of his fur. The posture and expression of the dog is the quintessential Chinese aim - not just a likeness but capturing the essence of 'dogness'.
