Still Life with a dead Jay

Aelst, Willem van

Still Life with a dead Jay

The bird's plumage is not painted as smoothly as one might expect in a work by van Aelst and the composition lacks his habitual elegance. It has been attributed to one of his followers, several of whom were capable of imitating his art closely. Isaac Derues (1647-1690) has been suggested as a possible candidate.
