The Hunting Party, Adriaen van de Velde, 1669

oil on canvas, h 59.5cm × w 73cm × d 11cm. More details

In the paintings from Van de Velde’s final years, humans and animals occupy a steadily more prominent place, and the landscape serves as décor for the scene. Here we witness the calm beginning of a hunting party. No one is in a hurry, two men have even sat down. A giant dog sniffs at a bone, while another one naps.
