Art of the Hunt

Hunting is deeply rooted in human culture, extending over all seven continents. Through the work of painters, sculptors, and graphic artists dating from the early nineteenth century into the twenty-first century, the changing role of birds and animals within the context of the hunt is illustrated and celebrated.
