The composition of this artwork shows a sly red fox setting amid three birds, he has already killed one of the birds and he is contemplating going after another bird so he can have a bigger meal. This is a pure winter scene with much snow over the ground with bushes and trees in the background, the red coloring of the fox contrasts nicely with the white snows. Bruno Liljefors was a Swedish artist mainly known for his wildlife paintings of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. During the last years of the 19th century a brooding element entered the works of Liljefors, most likely because he left his wife, Anna, and took up with her younger sister, after this he was often short of money. The darker quality of his works during this period eventually began to attract interest and he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon. Country Decor art print #87
