This picture perfectly exemplifies his exuberent and optimistic artistic personality. As J. C. Ebbinge-Wubben put it in his entry for the picture in the Thyssen-Bornemisza catalogue, 'he joins a sense of decorative beauty with a great freedom in construction, a warm colouring and a rich shading of the matière of the past. By contrasting the three hounds to the dead game Fyt achieves a greater liveliness and naturalness in the picture; for the same reason he put the hunting still life against a landscape background'.
