Footnotes

  • PROVENANCE:
    With Galerie Charpentier, Paris

    The bold red breast with black and blue head feathers suggests that the bird depicted may be a stylised rendering of a White-throated Redstart. Although native to Bhutan, China, India, Burma and Nepal it is probable that Bussy's source for this charming painting was actually a specimen discovered on one of his sketching trips to London Zoo.
