Tapestries of the Royal House:
First series

The first series was produced in 1775. There were nine paintings on the theme of hunting and fishing for the dining room of the Principes de Asturias (the future King Charles IV and Maria Louisa of Parma) in the Escorial. The Quail Shoot clearly shows his dependence on the style of Bayeu, with little in the way of personal contribution apart from the treatment of natural light. This series is completed with The Wild Boar Hunt, Dogs in Leash, Hunt with Owl and Net, Hunter Loading his Gun, The Hunter and his Dogs, The Angler, Boys Hunting with Owl and Hunting Still-life.
