Tinted lithograph. Image measures 13" x 16.75".
In this print, a red deer, one of the largest deer species, is chased by two deer hounds, one which leaps in unison with the larger animal. The comparably small size of the dogs showcases the large size of the deer, which looks down at his pursuer with a wide eye full of a palpable sense of fear. The print, published circa 1840, is in good condition with minor stains. Wear to the margins not affecting the image.
