Albrecht Durer Young Hare
Young Hare (German: Feldhase) is a 1502 watercolour and bodycolour painting by German artist Albrecht Durer. Painted in 1502 in his workshop, it is acknowledged as a masterpiece of observational art alongside his Great Piece of Turf from the following year. The subject is rendered with almost photographic accuracy, and although the piece is normally given the title Young Hare, the portrait is sufficiently detailed for the hare to be identified as a mature specimen. The German title translates as “Field Hare” and the work is often referred to in English as the Hare or Wild Hare.
