A series of 6 decorative panels by Benjamin Rabier "The adventures of the Fox", illustrating different scenes/episodes of a medieval story, entitled "The Fox Tale".

'The Fox Tale' is a collection of octosyllabic accounts written during the 12th century by different French authors including Pierre de St Cloud.

The work is made up of 27 independent episodes relating the adventures of Goupil (Fox - The hero of the Tale) and his rival Ysengrin, the Wolf. 'The Fox Tale' was a critique of medieval society under the guise of animal characters. It would give way to numerous adaptations and would inspire several illustrators such as Benjamin Rabier in 1909 for Tallandier editions.

The french illustrator Benjamin Rabier is celebrated by the brilliance of his animal drawings, his famous character Gédéon the duck, his illustrations of 'La Fontaine Fables' and also the "Laughing Cow" which still humours children and adults alike!

From 1916, Rabier turned towards publicity and cartoon art.
