Aubusson tapestry of the eighteenth century.
At the heart of a countryside, near a charming village on the water, a man helped by two women is trying to catch birds. Children play happily around them.
Their modest but charming isolated house in the beautiful vegetation evokes a poetic scene.
The eighteenth century appreciated this lightweight and rural subject.
