.
In 1895 scholar and politician Baron Denys Cochin commissioned Maurice Denis to paint a mural for his office.  The theme: the legend of St. Hubert, in which the cross of Christ has appeared between the antlers of a stag during a hunt.This allows symbolist and mystic Maurice Denis in 1897 to make his first major mural. The work is a summary and means of expression for the Nabi period: harmony of form and color, motion,  visual and decorative sensations …The setting consists of seven panels that follow one another on three walls, following the course of hunting and along a path Manichean. Four themes interweave them: the hunt, the conversion of St. Hubert and the evidence of the sacred and the misfortune of hunters driven by their passions, and finally the fate of the family Cochin, a symbol of the human family united in peace and prayer.
