My figure is enjoying Hunters In The Snow by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. The painting from 1565 shows a wintry scene in which three hunters are returning from an expedition accompanied by their dogs. This Northern Renaissance work is one of a series of works, five of which still survive, that depict different times of the year.

The overall visual impression is one of a calm, cold, overcast day; the colors are muted whites and grays, the trees are bare of leaves, and wood smoke hangs in the air. Several adults and a child prepare food at an inn with an outside fire. Of interest are the jagged mountain peaks which do not exist in Belgium or Holland.
