The Dog is an oil on plaster painting by Francisco Goya. He completed the 52 inch by 31 inch mural in his house outside of Madrid between 1819 and 1823. It is considered one of the world first Symbolist paintings. The painting was eventually transferred to canvas in 1878 and now hangs in the Museo Nacional del Prado.
In the foreground, a long slope of dark ochre begins at the left side of the canvas and increases in size as it flows to the right. Slightly left of center, a dark gray dog's head with ears flopped back, nose facing to the right, looks up the slope. The background is a lighter wash of paler ochre. A dark splotch in the upper right corner is usually considered to be damage or an artifact from an earlier painting that was painted over while the work was still on its original plaster wall.
The Dog is one of a series of paintings Goya painted on the walls of his home. They were later named his Black Paintings because of their dark and ambiguous nature. At the same time the ailing and elderly Goya, upset over the ongoing civil wars in Spain, was finishing his Disasters of War series. The Black Paintings are thought to be intensely personal works that were never meant for public display.
