A group of young huntsmen trying to pass river in the centre, from the right bank to the left, with some difficulty; one horse in the river climbing up on the left bank, one rider pulling his horse out of the river, two dogs swimming. Bridge in the middle distance, hounds running ahead. By amateur sporting artist Sir Robert Frankland (1784 - 1849). Siltzer describes a set of seven plates published by Charles Turner. This appears to be a proof etched by Frankland but before Turner added aquatint his publication line.
See Siltzer p.122. This title not in Whitman. For an impression with aquatint, hand-colouring and Turner's publication line, see BM: 1871,0812.3080.
