Still Life with Birds and Hares

1643. Oil on canvas Not on display

Hiepes emphasised the symmetry of his composition by locating the plucked chicken in the centre and alternating the striking plumage of the small birds with the dark areas of the hare and duck on either side. On the table, the dishes containing offal and cured meats and the stripes of the cloth that recede towards the vanishing point create a sense of geometrical order.
