The suite, produced over the course of several years included fourteen tapestries, including some entre-fenêtres and became known as the Fêtes italiennes or ‘Italian village scenes’. Some pieces like the Gipsy Fortune-Teller, were produced at least thirteen times. Several tapestries from that suite are exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and amongst them are the Fortune Teller and the Hunters, but presented as a portiere (inv. 64.145.2 et .5). The Huntington Art Gallery, San Marino, California also exhibits an almost complete set, including examples of our two tapestries, however with some slight variations (cat. 119 b and c, pp. 303 et 304).
