A while ago my sister gave DH and I a repro of a painting "Kartoffellagerhaus" by Michael Sowa. I love the quirky nature of this image but only recently really did any research about the artist. He is known for his 'whimsical paintings often featuring animals'. I recognise his paintings below as those featured in the film Amelie. See more of his work here.Doesn't the "Fowl with Pearls" look fantastically regal?
