Jacopo de' Barbari: 'A Sparrowhawk'

Explore the paintings

This is probably a fragment of a larger picture. The bird appears to be a female sparrowhawk.

The artist, who is referred to as a Venetian, worked at courts in Germany and the Netherlands. This is perhaps a late work, from the period when the artist was active in the Netherlands, although artist and subject (Grif d'Anversa - Antwerp Hawk) are identified on the back in Italian.
