At the @nationalmuseumswe in Stockholm, I saw a very nice rabbit painting by French painter Alexandre-François Desportes. The baroque painting, made in the 1720’s, is simply called “Rabbits”. Deportes was a renowned still life painter and he became elected to France’s Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture as an animal painter. As such he was commissioned to make paintings by no others than Louis XIV and Louis XV. It seems like rabbit paintings are good to have on one’s resume.
