This shows Wootton at his best – loose energetic touch, particularly soft and suggestive in the distances, and a clever separation of the elegant company from the active huntsmen and writhing animals. The Prince’s huntsmen wear his livery; he and his companions wear the uniform he himself had devised for such convivial occasions. Probably commissioned by Frederick, Prince of Wales Cat. 246
