This large and striking oil on canvas was painted in homage to the 1668 work by Dutch Old Master Willem van Aelst (1627-1683). It depicts a partridge and falconry equipment, with a fly posed on the bird’s wing to bring to mind the concept of mortality. The original hangs in the State Art Gallery in Karlsruhe. If it were ever to be sold, it would be expected to command a price in the high seven figures.
This piece is a vintage oil painting executed with style and talent, after van Aelst’s composition but with no attempt to replicate his every brush stroke.
The frame: 53cm wide, 64cm high
The picture: 38cm wide, 48cm high
