In Sir Gawain and the Green Knight the lord in Fitt 3 of the poem goes out hunting while his wife stays in the castle to seduce Gawain.


Hunting played a major part in the lives of the aristocracy in the Middle Ages; in this print we see a hunter at rest with his dogs in the snowy landscape, thinking about enjoying a warm meal at the end of the day. The landscape is inspired by a wall painting at Cottered church in Hertfordshire.


A black and white version of this print is also available.


Only one available, hand printed on a Victorian Albion Press in Cambridgeshire, UK. Signed and editioned by the artist and printed on 250 gsm Somerset Velvet Paper. The printed part of the image measures approximately 6 x 6 inches (15 x 15cm).
