Many of Mrs. Saint-Laurent’s paintings of animals involve the ones that were close to her family, starting with their dogs. She lived for decades in a part of the country where hunting was a tradition for everyone able to safely handle a shotgun or a rifle.
Most of the time the family dogs were beagles, a hound type of dog with a keen sense of smell for hunting hare. Which they did as best they could. They would also hunt ruffed grouse with the same enthusiasm.
The artist had a good reputation for preparing delicious dishes from the small game hunted by the family dog. The dishes were enjoyed as much by family than friends and guests.
Dog is man’s best friend. This was easily verified with the family beagle, a breed with a gentle disposition.
