For this scarf we've taken details from a painting derived from an engraving which has been given variously to René Boyvin, Pierre Milan and, most recently, to both, jointly. Rosso Fiorentino is given credit for the engraving's design, which was used for a decoration on the south wall of the central section of the Galerie François I in the Palace of Fountainebleau. The subject of the oval framed at the center of the original is the origin of the name of Fontainebleau: a thirsty hunting dog named Bleau separated from its master and found in the forest a clear, pure spring; his master, "one of our kings," named the spring after him "la Fontaine de Bleau.
