Titian. Venus of Urbino (1538) Uffizi. (Source)
Every time Lucy sleeps in this fashion I always think of Titian's sweet little sleeping dog in Venus of Urbino. It then occurred to me that the artful feline and canine shenanigans in my household were a plea to Titian to repaint the portrait properly. I tried to tell them that Titian was a sixteenth-century painter (which Zeus knows since they were friends- read here), and was therefore unavailable to paint their portraits, but let's face it- there is no reasoning with these two. They refuse to stop reenacting the painting, no doubt as a form of protest, until Titian shows up. I suppose that this means that it will afford me many photo opportunities while we wait.
