An exceptionally long time ago a young dark haired Spanish woman took me to The Prado Museum in Madrid.

She showed me this painting - known now as Goya’s Dog.

It is part of a series called The Black Paintings.

I guess she was depressed.

Wikipedia explains that - “uncommissioned and never meant for public display, these pictures reflect his darkening mood, with their depictions of intense scenes of malevolence, conflict and despair.”

Looks pretty happy to me.
