Painted Peacock (Detail)
Give in to attraction and fall for our Painted Peacock by the Circle of Jan van Kessel.
Working with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., this design is one of our first produced as part of a licensing partnership with an art institution. This stunning peacock has been extracted from the intricately painted Study of Birds and Monkey (1660/1670) by the Circle of Jan van Kessel. Rendered in oil on copper, the rich autumnal colors and precise brushstrokes of this Old Master's artwork translate beautifully onto the skin. Learn more about our partnership in our interview with Gregory Jecmen, an Associate Curator of Old Master Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art here.
The Painted Peacock is also available in the Painted Plumage Set.
Size: 4" x 4.5"
Tattly are safe and non-toxic, lasting on average 2-4 days. We suggest placing on oil-free areas where skin does not stretch and keep them clean! Watch our Application Video to become a pro.
Born into a family of painters and artists, Jan van Kessel (Flemish, 1626–1679) is most well-known for his small-scale depictions of flora and fauna. Inspired by Joris Hoefnagel's (1542-1600) scientific naturalism, van Kessel's paintings, and those produced by The Circle of Jan van Kessel, are recognizably by their bright colors and intricate detailing.
