Self-Portrait by English artist George Stubbs (l. 1724-1806 CE). Stubbs was a self-trained, independent artist who is best known for his depictions of horses. His shift to a focus on dogs in his work elevated their status by depicting them as worthy of respect in their own right, not simply as pets or utilitarian "machines" that served people.
