This is a portion of a large mural commissioned by Grand Rapids resident and prominent retailer, Henry B. Herpolsheimer for the ballroom walls of the Herpolsheimer home at 119 Lafayette NE in Grand Rapids. The several paintings measured in total about 3' x 55' and were near copies of British artist, Cecil Aldin's popular watercolors and prints of the Fallowfield Hunt. The canvasses were removed from the home, restored, and remain in the possession of Herpolsheimer's descendants.
