"Portrait of a Dog (Doberman)" is a dynamic example of the oil paintings of dogs an people that famed Contemporary artist Pan Deng expresses in his oil paintings, capturing mood through a black and white-based palette that he feels illuminates the "soul" of his subjects. Pan seeks to isolate subjects that have deep meaning to him and one of his most reoccurring themes are close-up portraits of dogs, as he grew up with two dogs as a child and loved them dearly. He is also know for his series of female erotic portraits and images of political figures. Each of his paintings tend to focus on a single subject. The power of Pan's his paintings are grounded simplicity of the works with a depth created by his dynamic and unabashed painting style.

Born one of three brothers to a family of police officers in Nanjing, during the start of the Cultural Revolution, a career as an artist was not encouraged. Painting was a path Pan Deng had to pursue on his own. At an early age he found that he possessed a skill for painting that made him stand out among his peers. His work is celebrated in China, and has been the subject of important solo and group exhibitions for over a decade.
