Parelhoen (Guinea Fowl)

Jan Mankes, 1917

If you look closer at this guinea fowl by Jan Mankes you surely see the subtleties of color and tone, your eye disappears into that beautiful color glow. Then you feel that the guinea is reason to evoke emotions that lie much deeper. It's pure abstraction... [He] connect[s] a sort of cosmic consciousness with earthly things.
