A White Hen and Chicks and other Birds, Circle of Melchior d’Hondecoeter (1636-1695).

Oil on canvas, 98cm x 135cm.

D’Hondecoeter, who was born in Utrecht, almost exclusively painted birds.

They were usually game or exotic birds and were often portrayed, as here, in a parkland setting.

He was closely related to several other artists whose oeuvres were similar.
