Catalogue Note

The dog portrayed in the present work was the artist's daughter Julie Manet’s greyhound, which was given to her as a gift by Stéphane Mallarmé. The poet baptised the dog Laërte and wrote a little verse:

Leur levrier industrieux
Aux Dames Manet va remettre
- Côtes du Nord, à portrieux,
La Roche-Plate - cette lettre.
