The inclusion of swans in A Summer Day Andante gives the etching an added air of tranquility and contributes to the atmosphere which Norman so successfully conveys. He obviously considered which breed of dog would best suit the subject and used his numerous photographs of dogs for reference. Norman's choice of the Borzoi, the dog on the left in A Summer Day Andante, is a perfect complement to the elegant group assembled around the quartet; the Borzoi, also known as the Russian Wolfhound, was bred exclusively for the aristocracy of Czarist Russia. The other dog in this etching looks like a Welsh Springer Spaniel.
