From 1680 Jan Weenix concentrated on the still lifes of dead game, flowers and statuary for which he is famous. With dead birds in the foreground, and the elegant park and palatial architecture of the background, this painting typifies Weenix's compositions. Although hunting still lifes were not always appreciated in the twentieth century, they were highly valued in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
