Stag Hunting scene in a park

RCIN 913693

A watercolour of Lanhydrock gatehouse, Cornwall. The gatehouse was built between 1636 and 1651. In the foreground, a hunt passes by, consisting of six horsemen and women and a pack of hounds that are chasing a stag on the far left of the drawing. Rowlandson was a regular visitor to Cornwall, where his patron Mathew Michell had a house and where he made many topographical watercolours.
