This Curious Cow could hardly have any more character, so expressive is her gentle face. She seems to inspect the viewer just as the viewer regards the painting. The tilting of the head is characteristic of curiosity and a trait seen in humans too, immediately making her more charming. The red snout of this inquisitive cow dominates the piece and provides a bestial counterbalance to the cow’s anthropomorphic behaviour.
