a standing dog c 1585

  • Purchased with the support of the F.G. Waller-Fonds, www.rijksmuseum.nl
This engraving of a thoughtful fellow was created by Agostino Caracci circa 1582-85.  If the name sounds familiar but not quite, it's probably because you're thinking of his better-known brother, Annibale (the Italian version of "Hannibal").
