Arts Everyday Living: Animals in Art—Deep in the Stillness of the Forest

German artist Hans Hoffmann (c. 1530-1591/92) was often inspired by Renaissance master Albrecht Durer (1471-1528), particularly his depictions of animals like the hare above.  However, the forest environment is probably Hoffmann’s own creation.
