Wilhelm Trübner
German, 1851–1917
Dog with Plate of Sausages, also known as Caesar at the Rubicon
1878
Oil on cardboard
30 x 41 cm
Private collection

Here is Trübner’s prequel painting to yesterday’s very popular Dog with Sausages (http://tinyurl.com/m7ykuy9). As we know from that painting, this handsome and bold dog did indeed cross the Rubicon—he took the sausages. Can we blame him?

"It’s not like astronauts are braver than other people; we’re just meticulously prepared. We dissect what it is that’s going to scare us, and what it is that is a threat to us and then we practice over and over again so that the natural irrational fear is neutralized."

"The fact is, like it or not, you still live a world where gender matters. Where gender controls not just the entire course of your life – but the lives of women all over the world. Every second, a child will be born female in a country where she will persecuted for this random biological occurrence for the rest of her life. So before you hold up your anti-Feminist placard proudly and smile at your own sense of empowerment, think not what Feminism can do for you, but what it can do for that one girl. She needs someone to stand up for her. That someone could be you."

Lynx Genus Comparison Chart

So I decided to make a chart comparing the 4 lynx species: Canada Lynx, Eurasian Lynx, Iberian Lynx and Bobcat. I know they can be somewhat confusing, but hopefully this chart can help with that. 

The chart includes the following:

  • Name of lynx species (left-hand side)
  • Images of the face, profile and body
  • Scientific name (right-hand side)

(Although I do not like to crop/edit images, I have cropped some images to keep a uniform size and chart style).
