Run, Hare, Run!

"Since I first set eyes on a reproduction of The Hare by Albrecht Durer, I have been attracted by its simplicity and grace, and wondered about the story behind the drawing... Little is know about the picture - was it drawn from life, or from a museum specimen? - but the artist's love of nature is evident in his simple and economical rendering of the hare. Personally, I am sure it was drawn from life!" JW
