This painting was commissioned by foxhunting enthusiast Anthony Keith, 7th Earl of Kintore, and shows the Meet of the Fife Hounds near Falkland - the Lomond Hills can be seen on the left. In the centre is the huntsman `Merry? John Walker on his `famous Chestnut horse?. He is surrounded by the hounds Saladin, Bravery, Reveller, Ranter and Minister. The artist, Sir Francis Grant, was a passionate huntsman as a young man. His hunting paintings have been described as ?informal, relaxed and intimate, without any particular glamour?.
