This panel depicts, with some small alterations, the right segment of La Halte des Chasseurs, an example of which is in the Musee du Petit Palais in Paris (D. and P. Chevalier and P.F. Bertrand, Les Tapisseries d'Aubusson et de Felletin, lausanne, 1988, p. 146). The Chevaliers and Bertrand compare this subject to the only tapestry that can be linked to a documented work by Jacques-Nicolas Juillard (d. 1790), the Metairie au Bord de la Riviere, and believe it to be by the same author.
Juillard studied under Francois Boucher and concentrated on the art of landscape painting. After travelling to Italy in 1749, he was comissioned to design a tapestry series for the marchand-mercier Mathieu Dessarteaux, which determined Juillard's subsequent career. He succeeded Jean-joseph Dumons in 1755 as peintre des manufactures d'Aubusson et de Felletin. His contract specified tht he was to supply the workshops with a set of six designs for tapestries annually and to reside at Aubusson for four months every other year. Astonishingly, however, none of his designs for Gobelins, Beauvais or Aubusson have as yet been categorically identified although it is known that he supplied at least thirteen series between 1755 and 1782 and contiued to design tapestries until 1789.
