Description

The watercolor depicts in an extremely analytical way a hare surrounded by various species of plants and insects, accurately described: from the Alchemilla vulgaris (or star grass) on the right, to the dock with large fleshy leaves at the bottom, from the carnation on the left, to the small grasshopper bottom right. It is an example of virtuosity - accentuated by the presence of the fly at the top - linked to the fortune of Dürer's prototypes and, in particular, of the famous "Hare" of the Albertina of Vienna (1502). Moreover, the masterpiece was donated to the Corsinis by Cardinal Guadagni precisely as a work of the great German artist and is perhaps the same "Hare" protagonist of an anecdote told by Baldinucci (1681), about the sculptor Pietro Tacca, who refused to sell it. , despite a very high offer, "because I know how to earn the sequins, but if the hare goes away, I will never take it back". Today, the work is attributed to Hans Hoffmann, a Nuremberg painter very well known at the time for copies of Dürer's works, and was probably made during his stay in Prague, where in 1585 he became court painter of Emperor Rudolf II.
