 The Cheshire Hunt (now back on show) painted by Manchester-based artist Henry Calvert (1798-1869) in 1839, is the largest painting at Tatton and depicts several Egerton family members enjoying the then fashionable activity of fox hunting. It is now back on show in the grand Mansion entrance Hall and still provides the huge and impressive impact it had on visitors in the 19th and 20th Century.
