This issue is part of the 275th anniversary celebrations for the birth of the Spanish painter, Goya.

Francisco José de Goya y Lucientes (1746-1828) was a Spanish romantic painter and printmaker. He is considered the most important Spanish artist of the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

The Dog is the name usually given to one of Goya's Black Paintings, which he painted directly onto the walls of his house sometime between 1819 and 1823 when he was in his mid-70s, now on display in the Museo del Prado, Madrid. It shows the head of a dog gazing upwards. The dog itself is almost lost in the vastness of the rest of the image, which is empty except for a dark sloping area near the bottom of the picture: an unidentifiable mass which conceals the animal's body. The painting indicates that the dog is in distress, quite literally, drowning.

Goya did not intend the Black Paintings for public exhibition, and they were not removed from the house until 50 years after Goya had left.

The common reverse features the sculpture of Goya created by Mariano Benlliure in 1902, located in front of the Goya door of the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid.
