19th Century Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by Albert Caullet (1875-1950) is a definitive study of setters on a brisk fall day during a successful hunt.  The manner in which he has executed the sky and tails of the dogs indicates a blustery day.  Excellent use of subtle color variations creates a pleasant palette.  Survives in its original richly decorated frame!
Albert Caullet was a student of Van Leemputten at the Academy of Kortrijk where he became a teacher before becoming Director.  He preferred to paint classic themes, such as landscapes, cityscapes and scenes with cattle.  His oeuvre can be described as Romantic Impressionism.  From 1946 to 1949, he worked in England where he executed landscapes and urban views oscillating between impressionism and romantic realism.  He excelled in the rendering of animals and is considered in this respect as one of the best Belgian painters of this period.  A luminous athmosphere bathes his works.  His work is still displayed in numerous museums, and a retrospective at the Van Schone Kunsten Museum in Kortrijk took place in 1975.
