(Odessa 1856–1928 Munich) Setting off on the Falcon Hunt, signed F. Roubaud, oil on canvas, 59 x 83 cm, framed, (Rei)
Provenance: Private German property. Franz Roubaud: During the mid 1890’s Roubaud turned his attention to the subject of falconry, after General N.I.Kutepoff and other important artists had invited him to illustrate a splendid four volume edition on the Hunting of Princes, Tsars and Emperors in Russia (St. Petersburg, 1895–1911) . Roubaud was commissioned to illustrate the chapter on the releasing of hunting birds in other countries. His interest in this subject continued into the late 1910’s. We are grateful to Dr Olga Sugrobova-Roth for her assistance in cataloguing this work.

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
