Head of a Roebuck, Wybrand Hendriks, c. 1800

Head of a Roebuck, Wybrand Hendriks, c. 1800

brush, h 322mm × w 345mm. More details

The Haarlem artist Wybrand Hendriks tried to render this roebuck’s coat as realistically as possible with delicate dots and lines of the brush. Its dull grey tinge indicates that it is winter, because in the summer the fur is a light brown. The artist undoubtedly had ample time to study the animal; it is probably dead, lying flat on the ground with lifeless eyes.
