About the Work

Boisterous and droll: Puss, the Scholderer family's pinscher. As a regular guest of his fellow artist, Victor Müller knows his model well. He even mentions the shaggy lapdog, which was regarded as a status symbol at the time, in his correspondence. The artist accurately captures the dog's urge to scamper around, which Puss radiates despite his motionless pose. Müller had made a name for himself above all as the painter of mythological scenes. Here, he succeeds with an unusual picture here - the portrait of a dog.
