The Hunt In The Forest By Paolo Uccello

by Catherine Whistler


This booklet looks at 'The Hunt in the Forest' by Paolo Uccello, a painting which is often considered to be a masterpiece of the early Renaissance.

It belongs to the last decade of Uccello's career and portrays a hunting scene with figures in contemporary dress. This book sets out to explore the place of the painting in Uccello's career, and to look closely at its physical composition, its design and subject matter, before suggesting the kind of audience for which it was made, and how the examination of the painting has enriched our understanding of Uccello's artistic achievement.
