The Hunt by Robert Burns was originally painted in 1926 and its exotic jungle setting frames the Greek goddess Diana and her nymphs. The wild birds and animals, including the striking leopards at the front, allude to her role as the goddess of hunting.


Like her Greek counterpart, Artemis, Diana was the goddess of the hunt and daughter of the Roman god Jupiter and twin brother to Apollo, the god of light. Diana was also revered as the goddess of the woods, the moon and wild animals.


This panel was created as part of the ambitious first floor decoration for Crawford’s Tea Rooms at 70 Princes Street, Edinburgh. Burns was responsible for every detail of the interior design from the murals to the cake-stands and the artwork evokes all the exuberance and energy characterised by 1920s design.
