Claude Monet painted The Hunt in 1876. Painted on the grounds of Chateau de Rottembourg, Monet included a portrait of Hoschede in a group of hunters moving along a path in the woods.

Ranging from dry tints such as golden ocher to warm ones such as russet orange and vivid scarlet, Monet used his palette to explore the visual spectrum of autumn. Color rather than the identity of the hunters or the result of their hunt engaged his imagination.
