Although he was Italian by birth, Palizzi achieved quite a reputation in Paris during the nineteenth century. An illustration of one of Palizzi’s works appears in Joséphine Bowses’ copy of ‘Le Monde Illustré’ for 1860 which may have encouraged her to acquire works by this sort after artist. Palizzi has painstakingly painted the dogs’ hair in a lifelike manner, recreating their glossy coats.
