Requiescat, but where's the cat? Image: WP. More pics.

Knightly tombs in churches with, resting at their feet, dogs that vary in aspect from lamb to lion: Briton Rivière shows the foreplay, but is the dog then bestonèd by sorrow (cf. the widowed Hindoo's fiery fate), or is it simply (or even lysergically) sacrificed?

  • Briton Rivière (1) Briton Rivière RA (14 August 1840 in London – 20 April 1920 in London) was a British artist of Huguenot descent. He exhibited a variety of paintings at the Royal Academy, but devoted much of his life to animal paintings.
