Ashmolean Museum Oxford

Hunt in the Forest Rider Magnet


Rectangular magnet, featuring a detail of one of the Ashmolean's highlight objects 'The Hunt in the Forest' by Paolo Uccello.

Uccello mapped out a grid on the panel's surface, fixing a central vanishing point. The devices of the huntsmen's spears, the cut branches and logs and the area of water denote this coherent space, inhabited by the receding forms of men and animals; our gaze is drawn deep into the forest.

Dimensions: 5.4 cm x 8cm
