The painting shows a group of hunters and their dogs returning to their village after a hunt on a snowy day. As of 2013, the painting was located in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria.

Edvard Munch's "New Snow in the Avenue" dates back to 1906. Munch is most known as the painter of "The Scream," and his paintings came under the influence of 19th-century Symbolism and German Expressionism. "New Snow in the Avenue" depicts two individuals walking along a snowy pathway.

Camille Pissarro created "Road to Versailles at Louveciennes" in 1869, and the work shows the influence of the painter's friend Claude Monet. The scene of this painting shows a location close to the painter's own home in the winter.

Vincent van Gogh's "Landscape in the Snow" dates back to 1888. The painting depicts a man walking through a snowy landscape.
