The artist is a scoop
The painting “Hunting Scene” is one of the early works n. With. Samokish, who later became famous for his battles. It is known that the artist during the holidays at the Academy of Arts was hired by a drawing teacher and left for distant estates, where he wrote sketches of horses, sketched gambling scenes, made sketches of hunting dogs. N. With. Samokish counted the horse "noble and beautiful creation" And he tried to portray not only her external beauty, but also convey the temper of the animal. He paid special attention to the image of the body of the animal during movement. He said: "Even the nag on the horse is beautiful and picturesque. I am not a lover of parades and I do not find anything artistic-beautiful in the correctly built columns ..".
Passion for horses, transfer of hostilities originated in the artist since childhood. Seeed in the house of a grandfather, a retired officer, popular pictures depicting episodes of the Russian-Turkish and Crimean wars, stories about past battles forever remained in the memory of a young artist. He did not change his dream in his own way to capture the military events and the life of animals in subsequent years, studying at Iah and improving his skill in Paris under the leadership of the famous battalist Edward Detagon.
This work was written during the years of student, then the young artist was recommended for the military department "For sketches of maneuvers".
