    About

    A fine art print of 'The elephant 'Hansken', 1646, by the Dutch artist Herman Saftleven. The artist here uses a typical device of natural history illustration, where studies of the same animals from different viewpoints are presented as if to show a group. In this case it is easy to identify the same same elephant in both figures, as it has distinctive twisting, overgrown toenails - the result of a life in captivity. This is probably the Asian elephant 'Hansken' which was brought to Amsterdam in 1633 and later exhibited across Europe. Hansken became something of a celebrity; several prints were made commemorating the elephant'; s tricks and artists including Rembrandt seized the opportunity to study it at first hand.
