Drake Pintail, Rochus van Veen, 1682

paper, h 360mm × w 510mm More details

A Beverwijk native, Rochus van Veen drew almost exclusively plants and animals found in the Netherlands. He must have seen or perhaps even caught this pintail himself. He meticulously drew the typical greybrown plumage and the long, pointed tail, from which the duck gets its name. The carefully placed brushstrokes in the chest and back feathers are particularly well observed.
