Catalogue Note

An 18th century copy after the original portrait of 1635-6 now in the Museo del Prado, Madrid.  The original by Velázquez has been reduced on both sides, thus showing only two dogs, but the previous existence of a third dog is attested to by the numerous studio replicas and copies such as this one.
