Peint par Carlo Vanloo. Gravé par J.J. Flipart
A Paris chez Jean rue St. Jean de Beauvais No. 32 [c.1773 bit later]
Engraving, platemark 505 x 370mm (19¾ x 14½"). Large margins.
Two bears attacked by numerous dogs and men (mainly on horseback), while another bear is pursued in the background. Engraving after a painting by Carle Van Loo, originally issued as a pair with a 'Tiger Hunt' after Boucher. The paintings were part of a set of nine then at the Surintendance in Versailles, and it appears that the engraver Flipart having obtained permission to reproduce them, originally intended to publish a larger series (see notes to British Museum cataloguing for the latter).
