EDITORS COMMENTS
In this artwork by Henry Alken, we are transported to the rural countryside of 19th century Britain, where poaching was a common yet illegal practice. The scene depicts two poachers standing proudly with a sack filled with their illicit bounty - the lifeless bodies of several hares. At their feet, their loyal lurcher dogs stand attentively, ready to assist in any way necessary. The composition is beautifully framed by a majestic tree and rustic fence, adding to the sense of anticipation and secrecy that surrounds these law-breaking individuals. The couple's roles are clearly defined; the male takes charge as he holds onto the sack while his female counterpart stands beside him, both sharing an unspoken understanding of their dangerous occupation. This color print captures not only the essence of hunting as a sport but also highlights the intricate relationship between humans and animals during this time period. It serves as a reminder of how our actions can impact wildlife and raises questions about morality and conservation. As we delve into this archival piece from 1820-1829, it evokes curiosity about Europe's history and cultural practices. While appreciating Alken's artistic talent in capturing such realism within his brushstrokes, one cannot help but reflect on human interests throughout different eras. Overall, this print offers us a glimpse into an intriguing moment frozen in time – one that sparks contemplation on our relationship with nature and society's evolving attitudes towards animal welfare.
