Animals in Art - Michel Vanden Eeckhoudt

Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden,
where doing nothing was not boring - it was peace.

Milan Kundera

Animals in Art - Martin Usborne

Movie Moments - Derek Jarman, Marianne Faithful, 1979

Ride through Paris in a sports car with the warm wind in her hair.
So she let the phone keep ringing and she sat there softly singing
Little nursery rhymes she'd memorised in her daddy's easy chair.
