Still Life with Drinking-Horn Poster

(0)Review Product

This poster print features Willem Kalf's Still Life with Drinking-Horn.

The drinking-horn in this still life was made of a single buffalo horn set into a silver mount which features Saint Sebastian, patron saint of archers, who was bound to a tree as a target for two Roman soldiers.

It dates from 1565 and is kept today in the Amsterdam Historisch Museum. The horn suggests that the painting was probably commissioned by a member of the Amsterdam archers' guild.

Still Life with Drinking-Horn by Willem Kalf was the focus of the Take One Picture schools course, 2011/12. Take One Picture looks at ways of using paintings in the classroom as a starting point for delivering many areas of the National Curriculum.
