is a 1502 watercolour and bodycolour painting by German artist Albrecht Dürer. It is acknowledged as a masterpiece of observational art. Dürer lightly sketched the image and underpainted it with some washes of brown watercolour. Then he patiently built up the texture of the fur with a variety of dark and light brushstrokes in both watercolour and bodycolour. Gradually, the painting was brought to completion with the addition of a few refined details such as the whiskers.
