More Information

Printed by Martin Saull on Velin Arches Blanc 400gsm The images in this new portfolio of nine etchings are closely related to a recent series of paintings by Hugo Wilson, which portray the most primal of all rituals – the hunt. Hunting scenes were popular with wealthy collectors in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; they represented a kind of ‘trophyism’ and a way of displaying mastery over nature. Images of writhing animal forms with snarling teeth, some recognisable but others indistinct, portray immense physical strength but the hunter remains unseen. The first twelve sets from the edition of twenty-five are presented in cloth covered portfolio boxes with an additional signed title sheet and colophon.
