Medieval romances are rich in contemporary detail; hunting is a frequent feature. Whether Bertilak hunting the boar in Sir Gawain and the Green Knight or Bevis slaying the boar in Sir Bevis of Hampton, boars are seen as a worthy opponent of any lord. 


This print features a medieval boar hunter on horseback wielding a powerful broad-bladed boar-sword ready for action. But, as can be seen, the boar has other plans for him! A black and white version of this print appears as an illustration in Michael's translation of Sir Gawain.


It is hand printed on 250 gsm Somerset Velvet Paper on a 19th Century Albion Press in 4 colours, printed from 4 different plates and signed and edition by the artist. Printed area: 12" x 12"; paper size approx twice as much again.


One of variable edition of 2.
