Biography:
Paulus Potter was the son of a painter and entered the Delft Guild of Saint Luke in 1646. He later moved to The Hague where he spent time in the Dutch countryside, sketching farm animals and the landscape. Dr. Nicolas Tulp persuaded Potter to moved to Amsterdam and became his mentor. During this period, he began etching and his prints were as successful as his paintings.
