Limited edition bronze of Huntsman and Hounds, ‘The Check’: sold out
The Check—all who hunt will have seen this scene, time and again. And David Geenty, one of Europe’s leading equine sculptors, has captured it now in this large and highly impressive limited edition bronze. It really is a special piece.
Geenty’s eye for the horse is already highly regarded throughout Europe, and this bronze secures his reputation on a far wider plane. The piece conveys a human truth: no greater bond exists than that between huntsman and hound. The sculptor has captured, perfectly, the way that a huntsman turns in the saddle, whip and reins in one hand, the other resting on his horse’s quarters as he makes eye contact with a trustworthy hound. His horse meanwhile communicates with another hound in a tableau that is at once intimate and universal: man, horse and hound.
This large and spectacular sculpture will be the showpiece of any room, or dining table, coveted by sportsmen and art connoisseurs alike. It weighs 4.4kg, is 425mm (16 3/4in) wide, and in a limited edition of 50.
