Shepherds Purse: tapestry - Scenes of hunting

Return to main page

The tapestry is currently located in New York at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Joubert identifies it as "Inv. 41.190.106 & 107, Bequest George Blumenthal 1941, Exposition Oklahoma City 1985, n. 95-96".

The work shows a group of male and female shepherds, one of which wears a Shepherds Purse. The photo is too small for other details.
