Carle Van Loo, La Halte De Chasse Oil on Canvas, 19th Century French School



After Carle Van Loo, La halte de chasse (1737) (in english « The hunting halt »). Large oil on canvas with a black lacquered frame with gilt molded highlights representing a lunch in the forest during a hunting halt. The forest is painted in style of 17th century landscapes. We can see different characters : in the middle, slightly on the left, the main couple is richly dressed and is shaving a lunch while bantering. Behind them, some victuals on spread on a wide white tablecloth; all around, men dressed in a more practical way being served by servants, one of them is colored and wearing a turban, sign of the wealthiness of the characters represented. On the right, on the foreground, a sat man staring dreamily the pack mule being filled and prepare to go back, before him, dogs are waiting patiently. On the background, horses are resting attached to a tree while some riders are still in action in the deep background. Reproduction of the 19th century, French school. This painting is a great example of Fêtes Galantes such as paintings made by Watteau of Boucher? It's also a tribute to Louis XV's passion for hunting. The little History likes to relate that the main couple might be King Louis XV … and one of his mistress!
