Alexandre-François Desportes (1661 –1743() - Hallali of wild boar

Through his master Nicasius Bernaert, a pupil of Frans Snyders, Desportes was introduced to the milieu of Flemish painters in Paris and learned about the realist art that would mark his painting throughout his brilliant career. Louis XIV appointed him “painter of his hunt” and even though Jean-Baptiste Oudry broke Desportes’s monopoly of hunting depictions around 1723-1725, commissions continued to pour in until his death in 1743.
