Melchior d'Hondecoeter (1690)
Presented here are two squirrel monkeys from Central America, two white sulphur-crested cockatoos from Australia, a grey parrot from Africa and a purple-naped lory – on a chain at the lower left – from Indonesia. Hondecoeter combined these creatures and several other splendid birds in this painting, which was destined for Het Loo, the palace of William III. It hung above the door of the king's private apartment.
