Spring Means Baby Animals

It is that time of year, when bunnies and soft cuddly things occupy our minds. This delicate & sweet baby boar caught my eye recently at the Met. It has a lot of the same qualities as Durer animal images, maybe done by a follower or imitator, but I didn't note the artists name. The support for this painting is vellum, or the prepared hide of a calf, and so follows the baby animal theme.
