Historia

For more information, see For more information, see Pieces of Lamb.

From 1865 onwards, this particular work went from one private collection to another before arriving at the Wildenstein collection, in New York.

Análisis artístico

In this still life, the two hares entirely dominate the composition thanks to their placement over a neutral background, which is only interrupted by a wicker basket on the left-hand side. The bodies of the animals are crossed over one another to form an X. They are still rigid, unnaturally immobile, and their eyes are fixed open. The overall effect, as Juan José Luna points out, is one of tense stillness.

Just as in the rest of the works in this series, the colour palette employed by Goya is very limited, although this has not prevented the Aragonese artist from capturing details such as the animals' coats with a very high degree of realism.
