These two fragments are part of the 43rd tapestry along the Louvre’s Grande Galerie, the so-called Galerie du Bord de l'Eau, described in these terms by the Garde-Meuble: "No. 184 La Chasse (The Hunt). The forty-third: a tapestry with a brown background, depicting a deer’s head and scrollwork at each of the four corners, on which there is a large white compartment and another smaller compartment with twelve canted sides in the middle surrounded by festooned ribbons, having in the middle a sunflower surrounded by flowers, at the side of mentioned compartment are two stag heads against a linen grey background with hunting tools, and two landscapes at both ends, 7a ½ by 2a 5/6 wide ".

The 93 tapestries along the Grande Galerie that connected the Louvre to the Tuileries were designed by Charles Lebrun and Louis Le Vau, then woven by the manufacture Royale de tapisseries de Turquie et du Levant said la Savonnerie whose entrepreneurs were Simon Lourdet (Chaillot) and Pierre Dupont (Galeries du Louvre) between 1668 and 1688. During the French Revolution these tapestries became a bargaining chip for suppliers such as Bourdillon in An V, who obtained the 43rd one. It seems that it was taken by the Directoire, but removed from the collections for it was found in 1937, cut then re-assembled as often is the case with these tapestries.
