The painting of The Belvoir Hunt – A Hunting Morning at the Kennels is described by Munnings in his autobiography. “I am at work in the broad, paved sort of railed-off corridor between the two kennel yards, with several hounds in front of me. An old and ancient kennel-man, as old as Methuselah, in a white coat, with a boy to help is holding Belvoir Wicklow – the centre hound of my picture.” “This is a picture for grey days. Those beautiful heads of the hounds, their white chests, white flanks and here and there a lighter coloured specimen with more white about him. The whole thing making a pattern, the background – the archway through into the kennels – the octagonal roof with its clock in the tower above. And so all else is forgotten – I paint the hounds until the gilded hands of the clock show me that it is one o’clock.”
