Tropical birds (Hornbill -  Buceros rhinoceros) and Beo

Besides being a painter and influenced by Japanese art Willem van den Berg is known by a series of linocut prints of (tropical) birds probably seen in Amsterdam Artis Zoo. 


As professor and director (1938-1953) of Amsterdam Academy he was respected as a teacher and artist but also feared because of his character and bad temper. His duck and geese compositions are my personal favourites.
