Antonio Saura was a painter and writer, has been considered one of the leading representatives of Spanish abstract expressionism and one of the great artists of the twentieth century.
In this book he tells us about his reflections on the work of Goya, The Drowning Dog, a work that reinterpreted and inspired him in his work.
In the words of the author: "The Dog of Goya is for me the most beautiful painting in the world. There is no such dog, it is Goya himself who looms contemplating something that is happening. Or maybe we're ourselves."
For Saura the head of the dog peeking out is the portrait of the loneliness of each one. Referring, ultimately, to the vital unease and existentialism of the contemporary subject.
