The Red Fox has long been renowned for its stealth and cunning, especially when being hunted and chased by hounds. Foxes have been known to double back on their own tracks, walk on fallen timber or even climb on fences to evade the deadly charge of these hunting dogs.
The fox hunt, now mercifully condemned by the majority, is the pursuit on horseback of a fox with hounds for the sake of sport. These sportsmen finally corner their victim with help of their dogs, and the climax of the hunt would be best left unmentioned.
In this painting the fox has eluded the hounds and has found refuge in the sanctuary of a cave, but the timourous expression on his face and the anxiety in his stance reflects the ordeal of the chase.
