toulouse-lautrec: la gousse

Dallas Museum of Art, The Wendy and Emery Reves Collection
This very small oil on panel measures no more than 5.25 x 9 inches, yet Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) has given this wiry-haired dog great physicality and presence. It's easy to forget that he could produce outdoorsy, realistically observed pieces such as this, and it's always enjoyable to rediscover them.
