How it works


M6407 Hawking Party by the Spanish Forger, Paris, c. 1910

The scene of the man and his lady hunting with dogs and birds of prey was a subject used by the Spanish Forger on several occasions, with slight variations; features found in all, or most, of them include two dogs running next to a stream in the foreground; the man on horseback releasing the falcon from his wrist; a finely-dressed lady on the same or an adjacent horse; a second falcon catching its prey mid-flight; a huntsman with a spear over his shoulder; and a landscape with a castle on top of a peak in the background (cf. Voelkle, figs.48-51, 230, 299). The composition is clearly derived from the August calendar miniature in the Très Riches Heures. Voelkle has catalogued this painting as P111.

Size: 364x283mm, 14.25 x 11.25 Inches, thick wooden boards: Man and his Lady hunting, small hole of nail at in centre at top and slight vertical split.  

  • Overall Condition: Good
  • Size: 14 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches
