livestock

415 Discovered works of art
Human life is inconceivable without animals. Cows, sheep, goats, geese: they are all livestock and reliable companions of man through a, especially in earlier times, exhausting but fulfilling everyday life. How does painting approach this topic? "Landlady riding a donkey" by Constant Emile Troyon emphasizes the unity of humans and animals in the midst of a cheerful, English summer landscape. The loyal devotion of the animal is as much in focus as the tiredness of the farmer's wife, who is just returning home from the fields.

The baroque painting "Cattle Drinking at the Edge of the River" by Aelbert Cuyp also describes an idyllic scene and a daily ritual in front of a dramatically designed cloudy sky. The farmer is presented here as an understanding, anxious cattle herder who cares about the welfare of his animals. Animals can also be depicted symbolically on the canvas. The Spanish champion Francisco de Zurbaran paints in "Agnus Dei" intended for the slaughter lamb. Its purity and beauty are masterfully designed in every detail.
On the other hand, the two young lambs are touching, playful and carefree under a blossoming cherry tree in the painting "Two lambs eating flowers". Everything is tender here: the colors, the little animals, the young plants. This world shows pure harmony, if only for the moment of viewing.

Farm animals have always fascinated as individuals. The Scot William Henderson puts a pig "Jumbo, 16 months old" in the center of the action. Thanks to its fullness and almost serene composure, it adds an accent to the red village roof in the background. Sheep, cattle, goats and donkeys populate the canvases, tell stories such as the flight from Egypt or describe everyday life in mostly rural surroundings.
