Original works of art

H. Hardy Simpson
(English, fl.1886 -1888 )

Exhibited two works, ‘Left at Home’ and a portrait of huntsman at the Royal Academy and two works at Suffolk Street.

Scholarly opinion has come to think that many of the animal scenes for the Torre de la Parada, were actually not done by Rubens, nor by Frans Snyders, but by Paul de Vos. Snyders’ later hunting scenes, produced after 1640, are also believed to have been substantially painted by Paul de Vos. This work is characterized by a more successful integration of the animals with their backgrounds, due to a more harmonious tonal range. Indeed, it appears that many of the animal paintings for which Snyders was contracted for and paid for, were actually painted by de Vos ( and signed by de Vos).
