Like prints of romanticized peasant life, engravings of European gentry in the midst of a fox hunt were well known in the colonies. Needlework pictures designed after such scenes were made in both Boston and Philadelphia; their popularity may be attributed to the firm alignment the affluent residents of the two cities felt with the genteel society of the mother country.
