Bruno Liljefors brought animal painting to life during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His most celebrated works combine impressionistic brushwork with carefully observed realism to depict animals interacting naturally with their environments. An avid hunter, many of these concerned predator-prey relationships. Though Liljefors sometimes used dead specimens as models, he quite often painted from life, maintaining an enclosure where he kept variety of animals, including foxes, badgers, hares, squirrels, weasels, and birds of prey. Just as the Impressionists before him reinvigorated landscape painting by capturing the fleeting effects of light in different seasons and times of day, Liljefors’ nuanced observations of living animals allowed him to advance the genre of wildlife painting beyond its associations with taxidermy and scientific illustration.
