Willem MARIS , 1844 - 1910

Ducks alighting on a Pool


Date: about 1885
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 32.4 x 20.3 cm
Acquisition credit: Presented by J.C.J. Drucker, 1912

There was a duck pond near the artist's home at Voorburg, where he drew and painted the birds in oil and watercolour.

The impression is of a Winter or early Spring scene. There is a mass of sparse foliage around the branches, suggesting early growth. The mallard has a full blue-green head of feathers - he loses this after Spring.
