About The Exhibition

This exciting new Fall exhibition will consist of 25 artists’ paintings on the theme of the Hunt and the Chase. Participaing artists include: Juliette Aristides, C.W Mundy, Michelle Dunaway, Karen Offutt, Julio Reyes, Candice Bohannon, David Gluck, Katherine Stone, Derek Penix, Olga Krimon, David Gray, Cornelia Hernes, Stephan Bauman, Mia Bergeron, John McLeod, Richard Thomas Scott, Sam Robinson, Vanessa Rothe, Nicolas Martin, Megan Euell, Stephanie Thompson, Eric Bowman, & Joe Weatherly. With the September 2019 opening to be held in the Patrons Gallery of the famed Salmagundi Club in New York, with rich wood furniture and marble fireplace, exuding old world charm, “The Hunt” will be right at home in the famous walls of the historic Art Club. The theme of the hunt has been popular through the ages, and the fox chase is still prevalent in England, France, most of Europe, as well as the East Coast of the United States. From King Louis XIV, to French riding clubs, tailor shops still exist in Paris on Rue Jacob, crafting one of a kind tweed suits for France’s hunting society. Clubs and estates still practice this historical sport, most more conscientiously than in the past. Libraries, clubs, hunting lodges and debonaire offices are filled with paintings of the hunt as well as legendary and historical master works of the goddess Diana of the hunt. From historical works such as Chardin’s renowned tonal still-lifes of ducks, rabbit, fowl and game, to Peter Paul Rubens’s dynamic works “The Tiger Hunt”, “The Wolf and Fox Hunt”and “The Wild Boar Hunt, to Eugene Delacroix’s “Tiger Hunt”, these fine works were often created on a grand scale. Prized fox-hounds and pheasant hunts were some of the more prevalent of subjects in the mid 1800’s to 1900’s, and it remains an intriguing theme for artists to approach today. In “The Hunt” exhibition, Rothe has asked some of today’s top realists to revisit this classic theme with their contemporary palettes and ideas. Whether inspired by these fantastical large scale historic works, or by subjects they have encountered in their everyday lives, their works explore the many aspects of the hunt, the chase, and even the beauty of the forest itself. David Gluck has recently created many fine art works of a pheasant hunter, and will be adding a mid-sized piece to the exhibition on this subject. Esteemed animal artist Joe Weatherly has created dynamic fight scenes between a jaguar and a crocodile, as well as a stunning new painting of a snow leopard; a fine hunter itself. Michelle Dunaway was inspired by friends that keep falcons, and famed horse-andrider artist, Sam Robinson includes stunning small gems, as well as large scale works of the Fox Chase and foxhounds worthy for the fireplace of a large home. C.W. Mundy has created small gem portraits of hunters, fishermen and trappers, such as our Russian Siberian Bear Hunter with his iconic Russian hat. Other artists focus on feathered bird still-lives, or deer with antlers painted in thick, neutral, textured paint.


Sam Robinson A few notes on the collectin from the curator Vanessa Rothe “We have discovered that many of our fine art collectors admire this exciting, timeless theme. Traveling Europe, I had seen countless historical works relating to duck and pheasant hunting, or the Fox Chase. Then noticed the classy theme being touched on in by some contemporary artists over the last year, so I decided to move forward and curate a full contemporary exhibition. To inspire the artists I asked them to think of Chardin’s still lifes, Ruben’s hunting scenes, English tweed, foxhounds, ducks, the fox chase, deer, pheasants, fishing, wolves, horse and riders, lodges and rooms where antlers are decorations, as well as figurative works of Diana, goddess of the hunt. It’s always of interest to our collectors to have a new, exciting theme for their collection. As artists of this century, we want to be inspired by, and carry on, the traditions of our past masters; while making it our own for the market of today”.
