Paulus Potter’s birthday

Originally shared by Getty Museum

Happy Birthday Paulus Potter!

Seventeenth-century Dutch painter created portraits of animals, making them his picture’s focus, not just a backdrop for human action. He is said to have wandered the Dutch countryside, sketchbook in hand, equally sensitive to how farm animals behave at different times of day and to light’s vicissitudes from morning to dusk.
