Jan Weenix: 'A Deerhound with Dead Game and Implements of the Chase'
On the ground lie a stag and a heron. Two hares, a gun and a horn are hung from the tree on the left. On the right a boy blows a hunting horn, and in the landscape beyond him a stag hunt is in progress.

This painting may have been commissioned by the Elector Palatine for his hunting lodge at Schloss Bensberg. Weenix was his court painter in 1708.
