A Rest during the Hunt

1901. Oil on panel. Not on display

Francisco Domingo approaches the work of Diego Velasquez (1500-1600) in a free reinterpretation of the human types painted by that artist from Seville. A group of hunters take a rest during a hunt. All of them are dressed in seventeenth-century style. The group of three men at the left of the composition recalls the gentlemen in Velasquez´s works, and the composition of the dark horse held by a hunter, on the right, is directly taken from that artist´s Surrender of Breda (P01172). Despite these allusions to the master whose work Domingo knew well through the Prado Museum, this canvas seems to give more importance to the lush landscape than to the human figures. This painting was acquired by the State for the Museum of Modern Art by Royal Order of 1919.
