A framed oil painting interpreting of A Couple of Foxhounds by George Stubbs, the original dated 1792.

The hound and bitch shown here against an imaginary landscape have been harmoniously balanced to form a deceptively simple composition. Unlike Stubbs’s earlier paintings of foxhounds that tended to be more formally posed, this pair are engaged in almost human interaction.

The picture was probably commissioned by the Reverend Thomas Vyner of Lincolnshire, an avid sportsman and an expert at breeding hounds. The foxhounds were probably bred from the 1st Earl of Yarborough’s famous Brocklesby pack. Stubbs painted a single portrait of Ringwood, the leading hound in the pack, in the same year.
