Important frieze on the theme of hunt and gastronomy. Putti, animals, fruit, vegetables, and grapes unroll and interact in a dynamic and whimsical procession. Very finely wood-block printed in sepia tones by Jules Desfossé, 1855.
Frieze divided into two panels: H.17 ¾’’ x L. 5’ each.
This decor was presented at the Exposition Universelle de Paris of 1855 on the stand of Desfossé above one of his three important panels, L’Automne by A. Clesinger. In perfect condition, never hung. Mounted on canvas and stretchers.
