Giovanni Domenico, in this charming composition, depicts Dwarves and Dogs after paintings by his father Giambattista.
The Dwarf, on the left side, and the Dog seen from the back, are related with the painting ‘Il ricevimento di Enrico III nella villa Contarini alla Mira’ (1754); the Dwarf, on the right side, is similar to the one in the painting ‘Banchetto di Cleopatra’ at Arcangelo (1747).
The two dogs at upper left, are in relation with a drawing by Gianbattista preserved at the Metropolitan Museum of New York and related to the painting by Paolo Veronese ‘La famiglia di Dario davanti ad Alessandro’.
