The hunting scenes of the Marche region (Aubusson and Felletin) tapestry manufacturers were in part directly inspired by Flemish tapestries, but also copied from engravings by Giovanni Stradanus (d. 1605) and Franois Etienne Delaune (d. 1583).
A set of five tapestries with various hunting subjects, including a stag hunt, are illustrated in D. and P. Chevalier and P.-F. Bertrand, Les Tapisseries d'Aubusson et de Felletin, Lausanne, 1988, pp. 29 - 33. Another illustrating a stag hunt and with similar central coat-of-arms is illustrated in H. Gbel, Tapestries of the Lowlands, New York, 1924, fig. 454; while another similar, depicting a bear hunt, is illustrated in W.G. Thomson, A History of Tapestry, London, 1973, opposite p. 18.
