hunt

74 Discovered works of art
Long after hunting was no longer a necessary part of food procurement, and the killing of wild animals was no longer necessary to protect humans, hunting remained a motive still closely linked to the traditions of a country or region ,

Historically hunting was often a royal privilege. Especially in England and France, wildlife parks were reserved for hunting for the king and nobility. Those who hunted with the king and were familiar with the customs of wild boar, fox, wolf or falcon hunting belonged to a social stratum that stood out clearly from the simple infantry.

The special riding skills of the ruler can be represented in hunting scenes by the artist in a natural context. High on horseback, the ruler demonstrates that he has the power and ability to control the wild nature. Images that showed the prince hunting were a visual indication that the sovereign knew how to control and control his empire.

The Swiss painter Louis Auguste Brun (1758 - 1815) presents on a horse portrait of the French queen Marie-Antoinette how the regent manages to tame a wildly rearing horse. Julius Zimmermann shows the intrepid Elector Palatine Frederick II in the wild surrounded by his hunting party. George Goddard presents the Prince of Wales on a horse-drawn stag ride with the Lord of Cork, as they kindly reciprocate the greetings of the bystanders from the horses' backs.

Motifs and scenes of the hunt require high craftsmanship skills of an artist. Therefore, they are also a rewarding task and challenge for the draftsman and painter. With the representation of a galloping horse, the hunted and killed game, the lively movement of jumping hounds or the fauna of the forest in the background, an artist can prove all facets of his skill.
