Boy With a Dog, circa 1650
Bartolome Murillo

I have known of Murillo largely for his religious work. I was considering posting one of his madonnas for this week's entry, when I came across this lovely painting. It brought me to a dead stop. That little boy looks just like the kids in my neighborhood. He is so, oh, "modern" looking for something painted 350+ years ago, isn't he?


He looks like my youngest six years ago. I looked at his face for awhile to see if there was some classic Norman Rockwell comicality going on there in that face and decided there was not.
