The theme of the hunt, one of the earliest subjects represented in art, has been a perennial favorite in all media. Tapestries celebrating the hunt were intended to entertain rather than overwhelm. They served to make the room appear larger and remind the viewer of the pleasures of a favorite outdoor sport. This is one of a set of four owned by the museum.
