[Two dogs and calf's head]
Etching, platemark 80 x 120mm (3¼ x 4¾"). Thread margins.
Anonymous etching after the Flemish painter Frans Snyders (bap.1579-d.1657). On the left, two dogs, one of which has a veal's leg in its mouth. On the right, a calf's head and basket of fruit. Derived, with variations, from the painting by Snyders in the Musées Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels (inv.no.4323). Snyders, a regular collaborator with Rubens in Antwerp, initiated a wide variety of still-life and animal subjects.
