For the Spring Online Fair we are focusing on THE HUNT PORTFOLIO – a boxed set of nine etchings by British artist, Hugo Wilson.

The etchings are connected to a series of paintings the artist completed in 2015 depicting the most primal of all rituals – the hunt. Images of writhing animal forms with snarling teeth, some recognisable but others indistinct, portray immense physical strength but the hunter remains unseen. Hunting scenes were very popular with wealthy collectors in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, representing a kind of ‘trophyism’ – a way of displaying mastery over nature.
