  • Goat, ca. 1934
    Arthur Dove (American, 1880–1946)
    Watercolor, gouache, and pencil on paperboard; 4 x 6 in. (10.2 x 15.25 cm)
    Alfred Stieglitz Collection, 1949 (49.70.75)

    This watercolor is a study for Dove's oil painting of the same title (49.70.37). Dove typically worked out his compositional arrangements and color schemes in this medium, on a small scale, then transferred the image to a larger canvas by means of a projector-like "magic lantern" or a copying tool called a pantograph. A comparison with the Goat painting demonstrates the artist's adherence to his original conception of the work, with only minimal alterations to its shapes and tones.
