A donkey poses for an artist (who is half man, half animal) at his easel, the artist is painting an image of a body in a suit, the body’s head has been substituted with a buttocks (read “ass” in reference to the donkey). Composition identified as borrowing stylistically from Francisco de Goya’s Los Caprichos print series (after Capricho #41 ).
