Foxhound Art

Foxhound art is a fascinating category of dog fine art that not only reveals traits of the breed but also the environment in which they were bred. These works are commonly seen in hunting lodges and are highly popular among hunters, animal lovers, and horse enthusiasts.

Foxhound art can generally be found in paintings of British hunting scenes. The traditional fox hunts of British nobility generally employed packs of these versatile hounds and the canine prints that depict foxhounds generally show them in groups that interact closely with humans. Horses are also often included, since the hunters found it difficult to keep up with the agility and speed of foxhounds once they had found a scent. This inclusion of other animals and humans make these hunting dog depictions highly unique in the realm of canvas dog art where typically canines are depicted alone or with other dogs.

However, not all foxhound art includes other elements. Many examples of foxhound canvas prints highlight the dogs themselves. These works, such as 'Fox Hound' by Vero Shaw and 'Foxhounds' by John Scott, focus on the grace and speed of these athletic animals. Although these works are typically still hunting scenes, they focus more on the individual element that foxhounds provide rather than the hunt that they are involved in.

Foxhound hunting scenes have been depicted by several traditional artists. Works like 'Short Cut to the Meet' by Heywood Hardy is a popular canine print featuring foxhounds. Even Francis Grant found these animals fascinating, as seen in his work 'Sir Richard Sutton and the Quorn Hounds'. Although these works focused more on the hunting scene itself, the inclusion and careful depiction of these hounds reveals how important they were to the hunt. Canine prints like these are highly popular among collectors of fine dog art because of their historical value, both as an examination of this breed of hunting hound and as a look into the traditional activities of nobility during that time period.
