Peacock parakeet pelican crane and poultry

Peacock parakeet pelican crane and poultry is an outstanding animal painting made by the Dutch artist Melchior de Hondecoeter. The location and creation date of the painting is unknown. Melchior de Hondecoeter was an accomplished Baroque Dutch painter. However, he was known as an animalier, focusing on poultry painting, a tradition he learned from his father and grandfather. When he was only 23 years old, de Hondecoeter lived at the Hague, and soon he joined an Academic club that opposed the local Guild of St. Luke. Melchior was so successful that he was later employed by some of the richest men of the Dutch Republic.

Melchior de Hondecoeter was descended from a family that specialized in animal painting. Dutch painting, traditionally, made many subgenres out of still-life. Still-life dealt with many aspects of Dutch culture and life: its natural beauties and incursions to foreign places, as seen in still-life focused on vegetation, symbols of power, vitality, and reflections of life, as perceived in vanitas paintings that focused on mortality, signs of status as seen in breakfast painters that were artworks depicted interiors, furniture, and small delicacies. In every way, Dutch painting reflected the beliefs and reality of the Dutch Republic.

As the title indicates, there are a total of 15 birds in this picture from a variety of species. The picture’s center is occupied by the tail of an enormous peacock with its beak open and an expression of anger. The feathers that make up the tail are lightly golden and have green spheres that resemble eyes. The texture of the feathers is perfectly captured under Melchior de Hondecoeter’s brush. Near these beautiful, luscious feathers, two chicks are on the right side, and a mother chicken is worried about its offspring.

On the right side of the peacock, there is a similar bird. It looks in the same direction as the peacock, to the left, and its feathers are black, red, white, and yellow. There are also other bird species on the left side of the compositions. A big bird with fascinating black and white feathers looks at the peacock while smaller poultry is gathering around it. On this side, further deep in the picture, there is an open sunny sky with green trees.

Our paintings are 100% handmade by an experienced artist

Each painting is custom made and won't ship until it meets the highest degree of quality control
Experienced Artists

All our artists have at least 15 years of experience. We only hire qualified artists with advanced degrees in Fine Arts who have completed a dissertation in European or American art.

Highest Quality Materials

We only use the highest quality oil paint and finest available canvas. We insist on sourcing our materials from brands that have been in business for at least a century or more.

Quality Control

Our most senior artists, those who have at least 25 years experience, carefully examine each and every painting that comes out of our studio. No order is shipped before it meets our standards, which are the highest in the industry.

Always Hand Painted

Some companies claim to be selling handmade paintings when in fact they use printing presses and screening methods to speed-up the reproduction process and lower costs. We've been selling genuine handmade online since 2003!

Finest quality stretching, gallery wrap or framing

Purchasing without a frame
(unstreched canvas)

When purchasing a painting on its own, it will arrive rolled inside a secure tube with an extra 1.5" of white canvas on all sides so you can easily frame it in any local frame shop.

Purchasing a frame

You may choose to purchase your painting framed, in which case, it will arrive "ready to hang". We offer more than 20 beautiful models, all hand finished and expertly assembled by our experienced framers.

Note that for safety reasons we can only frame up to a certain size. Once the maximum size is reached the framing option is automatically disabled.

purchasing-img
Purchasing a Stretching Service

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.

Purchasing a Gallery Wrap

If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.

Door to door fully insured courier delivery

All orders ship with UPS, FedEx or DHL and will arrive directly to your home or office. A tracking number will be emailed to you as soon as the order leaves our studio so you can track it online. All orders ship express and usually arrive within 4-5 days from the shipping date. Due to shipping restraints, many of our framed, stretched, and oversize paintings may take 6-21 days for arrival depending on the safest route determined by the postal service.
