King of the Corn

This is a painting by Jozef Gabrvel Bakos, it is of his prize breeding bull. This painting is one of a series as well. I chose this painting not only because of the cute little bull, but because it looks as if the bull posed for him as Joze pained the bull. Also the detail between the corn stalks and the bull makes the audience know that the bull is the main focus in the picture even with the detailed colorful background.
