ABOUT THIS ARTWORK
Look carefully at Portrait with Pigeon and Poultry, by photographer, Miss Aniela. In a time back when such things were vastly important, a young woman is dressed for dinner. She has feathers in her hair and a cameo broach of a chicken at her breast. Shot in London, the feathered friend on her shoulder is from a 17th-century painting, by Melchior d’Hondecouter.
