I think they were called Magnagard fighters, used by the trade federation and later the separatists. One is in the 3rd prequel flown by General Grievous. But the scene in the painting is from the 4-6th movies era. And the craft is a bit modified.

They're Wookie ships, called Owool Interceptors (LINK), pictured in the Battle of Kashyyk (LINK).
