Multiple groups of hunters and dogs bound through the landscape in pursuit of birds and beasts. The rickety fences, meandering paths and natural disarray of the forest contrast with the neat town in the background. Sadeler uses strong contrasts in tone to create a stylised landscape after the original painting by Paul Bril, a fellow Flemish artist working in Rome. The subject and composition are typical of Bril’s landscape paintings, which frequently featured turbulent seascapes, travellers and hermits in the wilderness, and forest hunting scenes.
