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”.
