Painting: This lacquer miniature box presents a print of a painting by a great 17th century artist, d'Hondecoeter, often called the "Raphael of bird painters" by many, especially in the 19th century. Having painted a great number of birds over his lifetime, the artist gained true mastery of the subject, making him of the very best bird painters of all time. On "Birds in a Garden," the birds, taking up the foreground of the painting, are given a higher status, or importance, compared to the people, who reside in the painting's background.
