Exhibition Catalogs
Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 69
Another of the masterly works of this artist whom we have referred to as the painter of Nos. 73, 38, 31, etc. This is a story of the Game Laws of Germany. A poacher has been shot at and mortally wounded by gamekeepers, and is hurrying, with the aid of his accomplice, as fast as his wounds will permit, to the shelter of his hut. The death agony is stamped on his countenance. Suffering, the most intense, is impressed on every feature. No picture in the Gallery appeals more powerfully to the feelings. In the portrayal of the passions Hubner is pre-eminent. [P. 25; see entries 01550031, 01550038, and 01550073 for other works noted in this commentary.]
