A Bull torn apart by Dogs

1636 - 1638. Oil on canvas. Room 081

As an animal painter Paul de Vos was a follower of his brother-in-law and collaborator Frans Snyders although with a more specialist focus on hunting scenes. Both supplied art lovers and collectors with grandiose, very dynamic and on occasions violent scenes of the type fashionable in the first half of the seventeenth century in the Southern Low Countries and throughout Europe.
