Still Life with Dead Fowl

In a reed basket on a marble tabletop lie dead birds: finches, blackbirds and thrushes. This kind of composition with birds is also called a hunting still life or game piece. These species of birds were not shot, but caught in a clap-net or with lime twigs, and intended for consumption. Known chiefly for his landscapes, the Haarlem artist Salomon van Ruysdael also painted several hunting still lifes. He may have been influenced by models from Amsterdam and The Hague.
