"Keep Your Pets off Furniture III" is a figurative-surrealistic-style painting by Cuban artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco from his "Keep Your Pets Off Furniture" series. Francisco developed this series after he arrived in America and noticed the "lavish attention we devote to our pets, spoiling them and allowing them to lounge on the sofa." This series includes dogs and horses—inspired by his time living in Kentucky—lounging or jumping on ornate antique sofas.
"Keep Your Pets off Furniture III" features a bay horse wearing a saddle and bridle leaping onto an antique gold sofa with intricate red upholstery. Francisco sets the surrealist scene in a room with hardwood floors and elaborate beige and brown toile wallpaper.
