Description

Parrot. This parrot may well have been the pet of the fabulously wealthy banker and art lover Daniël Franken. The French artist Louis Charles Bombled drew the animal for its owner, perhaps as a ‘grateful souvenir’ of a pleasant first meeting. Originally from Amsterdam, Franken lived in Paris from 1871. He also owned a chic villa in Le Vésinet, where he regularly received artist and dealer friends.
