The fox hunt

Winslow Homer

Homer abandoned the human subject entirely in “The Fox Hunt” of 1893. A fox ventures forth to forage for berries on the snow-covered land, and a sinister line of starved black crows converges to attack him. The ensuing life-and-death struggle will be over quickly, but the pulse of nature that drives the winter ocean against the cliffs in the distance will go on forever.
