On of Goya's 14 'black paintings', the Dog on The Leash was a fresco that was transferred to canvas. It was painted between 1820-23, on the wall in one of the rooms of the Quinta del Sordo (the House of the Deaf Man). The fresco was one in a series of darkly themed works, which Goya had never intended to display publicly.
