A sportsman sits by an arched frame of a window with his shot gun behind him; on the sill is a dead fowl and a jug to the right, which accompanies the glass he holds in his left hand, perhaps a wine glass! Possibly after Gerrit Dou (1613-75), Dutch Golden Age painter who frequently used windows as framing devices in his paintings.
