About The Stork

“The Stork” is a work of art created by Albrecht Durer in 1515, which is drawn using pen and ink and reflects the Northern Renaissance art movement. Classified as an animal painting, this artwork is part of the collection at the Museum of Ixelles, located in Brussels, Belgium.

The artwork vividly portrays a stork standing on one leg, with the other leg lifted and bent at the knee. The stork is depicted in profile, with a clear view of its long, pointed beak and textured plumage, which showcases Durer’s meticulous attention to detail and skillful use of line. The drawing captures the elegance and poise of the bird and reflects Durer’s interest in the natural world. The background appears to be plain with small spots, which may be due to aging paper or a deliberate choice by the artist. Durer’s signature and the year of the drawing can be seen in the top-right corner of the artwork, signifying the artist’s presence and the period of its creation.
