Reference: Ref: Alo, p. 40; PAI-LXXII, 127. The hounds are loosed, and the horse is a-gallop amid the falling leaves of the Chantilly forest just outside Senlis, the seat of the Capetian monarchs in medieval France. This travel poster for the French railway not only explicitly invokes the royal tradition of the hunt, but hints at the Hunting Museum housed in the former St-Maurice Priory of the city.
