Potter Paul

Potter, Paul (1625-54), the great Dutch animal-painter, was born at Enkhuizen, his father being a landscape-painter. He lived chiefly at Amsterdam and The Hague, and died before he was thirty at the former city. His most celebrated picture is the life-size Young Bull now at The Hague; most of his other works are very small.
