Tapestry, wool and silk, Hunting Park, Flemish, probably Oudenaarde, c. 1580-1600. A landscape with men on foot and on horseback hunting with dogs. There are buildings in the background amidst the trees. The tapestry must once have formed part of a larger piece. There is a border along the top with small figures between bunches of leaves and flowers.
