'Hare raising' inspiration
A Young Hare, 1502
Watercolour and gouache on paper
Graphische Sammlung Albertina, Vienna.
At the top, a self portrait of himself at 26 years old.
This young Hare painting by Durer was the one painting that, in my childhood, probably inspired my love of painting animals more than any other painting. I was astounded by the incredible detail.
I still am today.
