Footnotes

  • The present compositions may be compared to a pair of paintings, Assemblies of Birds, that were sold at Sotheby's, London, 9 July 1998, lot 266. These compositions are unusual in Spanish art at this date and the artist may have drawn on Flemish models. The closest parallels may be found in the work of the Valencian painters, Tomás Hiepes and Miguel March, although a Madrid artist of this period should not be excluded.
