    Private collection, Germany, acquired from the above;
    By descent to the present owner.

    The German painter Carl Friedrich Schulz, who was educated at the academies of D├╝sseldorf and Berlin, had a special fondness for painting hunting scenes. These he produced in a style strongly reminiscent of the Flemish school, with keen attention to light, weather conditions, textures, animal anatomy, and an enviable skill in conveying a rolling expanse of landscape. For works such as the present painting, he gained the moniker 'Schulz the Hunter.'

    Much of the inspiration for Schulz's later work derived from his time as a soldier in the Napoleonic Wars, in which he volunteered to serve in 1815. He was appointed professor of the Academy of Arts, Berlin, in 1841, and moved to Russia in 1847.


    Condition Report*: Original canvas.
    Paint film in very good condition. Under UV examination there is only very minimal evidence of conservation. There is inpaint to the perimeter to address frame abrasion, notably along left and right edges. There are a couple touches of inpaint that fluoresce in the sky, a few in the foliage at the left, and in the profile/left eye of the boy where his face is against the sky.
    Framed Dimensions 26.25 X 32.5 X 3 Inches
