Eye Candy for Today: Hans Hoffmann’s hare

A Hare in the Forest, Hans Hoffmann

On Google Art Project; high-resolution downloadable file (21mb) on Wikimedia Commons; original is in the Getty Museum, which has some background on the painting.

Interesting to compare this oil painting by Hoffmann to Durer’s famous watercolor/gouache study of a hare, on which this, and Hoffmann’s own watercolor/gouache study of a hare were based.
