Both Bruegels enjoyed producing landscape paintings and would typically feature large numbers of people within them, normally going about their everyday business which is a style than has proved very popular. The winter scene helps Hunters in the Snow to stand out from their other landscape paintings.
A careful inspection of Hunters in the Snow reveals great detail across the background landscape which features mountains strutting out of the scenery plus frozen lanes serving as makeshift ice rinks. There is also significant numbers of buildings dotted around the scene which are covered almost completely in snow but can still be distinguished from their natural surroundings.
In the foreground are hunters at the top of the hill as threy start their day's work and this is obviously the main focus of the painting. The great detail across Hunters in the Snow makes it an excellent choice for those buying extra large print reproductions, where this detail can really be appreciated.
