Still-Life of Game

Oil on canvas, 123 x 100 cm
Private collection

The painting depicts a still-life of game: birds, grouse, a hare and a kingfisher, with a basket of fruit at the foot of a stone urn, an ornamental garden with a fountain beyond. Some of the motifs are freely adapted or repeated from other works by Weenix, such as the hare, the basket of fruit and the boy carrying a basket.
