17th “Hunting Scene” Pair of Flemish Oil on Copper Frans Snyders Cercle


“Hunting scene with dogs”, pair of monogrammed paintings, oil on copper, Flemish school of the 17th century, entourage of Frans Snyders.

Frans Snyders or Snijders (Antwerp, November 11, 1579 – August 19, 1657) was a Flemish Baroque painter, a pupil of Pieter Bruegel the Younger and Hendrick van Balen, specializing in still life and animal painting.
His production consists mainly of still lifes and hunting scenes, to which he gave a new monumentality. Became master of the Guild of San Luca in 1602, his prolific workshop will welcome many students.

Our compositions are the work of an artist very close to Frans Snyders, full of this dynamism so dear to the master: the dogs jump, according to the composition, on the deer or on the wolf, some fall, others arrive, still others, wounded, they lie on the ground in a grimace of pain. The bright red of the blood, the color of the furs of the dogs enliven the scene surrounded by the dark green of the forest.
Both are monogrammed “G.D.R.”

Oil on copper mounted on stretcher.
