Netscher: Woman Feeding a Parrot, Button

About the Artist

Caspar Netscher (1639–1684) was a Dutch portrait and genre painter of German origin who trained under Gerard ter Borch. Though best known for his exquisite domestic interior paintings, Netscher in fact produced surprisingly few works in this genre before transitioning to the more lucrative field of portraiture.
