Albrecht Durer's attention to the glories of the natural world make him a worthy practitioner of reverence. His respect for animals is evident in Young Hare and The Little Owl — two paintings, rich with telling details, that reveal the distinctive stances and moods of these small creatures. You can almost hear them breathing. The same sensory impact comes through in Three Linden Trees where Durer conveys his admiration for the beauty, dignity, and vibrancy of the trees.
