Product Description

A reverse painted print on glass of a fox hunting scene, dating from the 19th century.

After the original John Nott Sartorius (1759-1828) painting, the print has been engraved by J. Peltro and J. Neagle. It shows a party of horseman and dogs, riding in a wooded clearing. The remnants of a large tree can be seen in the centre, whilst a church spire can be seen on the horizon.

The print is entitled ‘Hunting Plate III | At Fault’ and bears ‘The Chase’ a 1735 poem by William Somerville (1675-1742). The first stanza reads:

Here, Huntsman, from this height
Observe yon birds of prey; If I can judge,
‘Tis there the villain lurks; They hover
round:
And claim him as their own.

Though barely legible, the dedication beneath seems to read: ‘obedient servant John Harris’, who had it published from the ‘Royal Exchange, London’

The picture is in very good condition, having been finely framed and glazed.
