A Hunting We Will Go

Landscape friezes were popularized by Walter Crane’s May Tree frieze in 1896 and remained popular into the 1920s. Beginning around 1900 many wide friezes were developed for children, and this hunting frieze would have been appropriate for a boy’s room as well as a library or dining room. This panel shows the hunters, horses and dogs at rest in front of a lodge or cabin in a very stylized landscape setting, presumably at the start or end of a hunt.
