The fox looking for prey.
nineteenth century
Technique: oil on canvas.
There are some cracks in the paint, typical of 19th century painting.
Painting represents animal, concentrated on the search for the henhouse, which stretches its neck and head guided by the predator's instinct.
The rural scene could refer to the Romantic current, and to the Biedermeier period, which had a happy period in Germany.

The German painter Joh. Friedrich Wilhelm Wegener was an animalist painter, landscape painter and engraver.
I study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen.
He worked for a time in Kiel and Hamburg as a lithographer, and was later able to finish his studies at the Academy in Dresden.
Wegener is also known for his drawings of watermills in the valley of the Rote Weißeritz and the Wilde Weißeritz in the Erzgebirge in two albums from 1837 in the Kupferstichkabinett Dresden.
