From the St. Louis Art Museum website:
"Here, Gustave Courbet shows two greyhounds with an aristocratic bearing. Perhaps they reflect characteristics of their owner, the young Count de Choiseul, who had proudly commissioned their portrait. The artist was a noted animal painter and often represented animals with human-like emotions. The elegant greyhounds are viewed from below to emphasize their height. They are silhouetted against the expansive shore of Deauville on the Normandy coast in France, where Courbet spent the summer of 1866 as a guest of the Count."

I never really appreciated them until our library organized an event with a greyhound rescue group. They were so beautiful and sweet. I haven't adopted one myself, but I've had it in my mind, too, sbjames.

Such beautiful dogs. I love all the sight hounds, tho I have never been lucky enough to have one in my home. They are so graceful & unique looking.
