There he developed his own style, characterized by large, strong brushstrokes, and soon his international reputation was established. Sorolla's special ability to render the play of bright sunlight on the sea, on sand, and on figures along the beach has been praised by critics. "Oxen on the Beach," which features all three surfaces, is a brilliant display of Sorolla's talents.

The landscape and the rich drapery behind the child suggest a Spanish origin. Based on these elements as well as the treatment of the child’s face, one scholar has suggested that MAG’s Child with a Dog could be the work of Juan Battista Martinez del Mazo, the son-in-law of the most famous Spanish painter of the mid-1600s, Diego Velázquez. After his father-in-law’s death, Mazo succeeded Velázquez as the official painter to the royal family; many of his portraits were of children, and many made use of similar background landscapes and drapery. We believe now that this work is by a painter active among the Spanish nobility during the mid-17th century, a period marked by prosperity and a flourishing of the arts known as Spain’s Golden Age.
