Hunters resting, after a painting by Karel van Falens (1683-1733), a Flemish artist who worked in Paris as a protégé of the great patron Philippe II, Duc d'Orléans. This engraving was made by the engraver Jean Moyreau (1690-1762) as the diploma work which announced his appointment as an Académicien in December 1736. He also made many engravings after Wouwerman and Watteau. Once in the collection of Reverend J. Burleigh James of Knowbury Park, Shropshire. An important collection of prints of all schools and periods, his collection of prints by Rembrandt and Dürer was particularly notable.
