Footnotes

  • Provenance
    Lady ALexandra Louise Elizabeth Acheson (1878-1958) who married Lt.-Col. Hon. Frederick William Stanley, son of the 16th Earl of Derby, and thence by descent to the present owner

    A native of Amsterdam, van Royen most probably studied under Melchior d'Hondecoeter (Utrecht 1636-1695 Amsterdam). He specialised, like Hondecoeter, in hunt still lifes and the depiction of exotic birds, as with the present work. A pair of paintings, of similar dimensions, can be found in the Wallace Collection (Accession nos. P62 and P67).
