Dosso Dossi: Portrait of a Young Man Holding a Dog and Cat (16th Century)

“This kind of moody portrait, or image of a particular human type, was popularised by Giorgione: here the dog and cat may allude to conflicting sides of the man’s personality….The exotic sitter has also been described as a young woman.” (source)
