Further information on this artwork

Wir danken Dr. Fred G. Meijer (RKD, Den Haag) für freundliche Hinweise.

Der unter Pieter Brueghel d. J. und Hendrick van Balen ausgebildete Künstler spezialisierte sich auf Stillleben und Tiermalerei, die zumeist sehr großformatig angelegt sind. Das Motiv der kämpfenden Katzen und Hunde kommt in mehreren Varianten im Œuvre des Antwerpener Malers vor.
Das großformatige Gemälde zeigt das dramatische Gegeneinander von zwei Hunden und drei Katzen, deren Kampf bereits eine Fayence-Schale mit Himbeeren zu Boden gebracht hat. Ein weißer braun gefleckter Jagdhund hat soeben den Hals einer Katze ergriffen, eine weitere Katze faucht gegen einen von links heranspringenden Hund. Am Boden zerstreut Scherben und Früchte, rechts hinten ein gefüllter Gemüsekorb, links oben gedeckter Tisch, von dem die Schale herabgefallen ist. Das Paviment im Schachbrettmuster wiedergegeben.

FIGHTING CATS AND DOGS

Oil on canvas.
120 x 179 cm.
Frame with artist’s name plate.

We would like to thank Dr Fred G. Meijer (RKD, The Hague) for his kind advice.

Frans Snyders trained with Pieter Brueghel the Younger and Hendrick van Balen and specialized in painting still lifes and animals, mostly in large scale formats. The motif of fighting cats and dogs reappears in several variations in the œuvre of this painter from Antwerp. The large- scale painting shows the dramatic encounter of two dogs and three cats whose fight has already caused a faience bowl containing raspberries to crash to the floor. A white hunting dog with brown spots has just seized a cat by the throat while another cat hisses at a dog bounding towards it from the left.
The bowl has fallen off a laid table in the top left and the floor is covered with shards of porcelain and fruit. A basket full of vegetables is depicted on the right of the chessboard pattern floor.

This object has been individually compared to the information in the Art Loss Register data bank and is not registered there as stolen or missing.
