  • Description
    French Old Master painting of a leopard attack
    French, early 19th Century
    Frame: Height 103cm, width 79cm, depth 6cm
    Canvas: Height 87cm, width 63.5cm
     
    This dramatic painting depicts the moment when a group of travellers is attacked by leopards while they traverse in a mountain pass. The painting betrays classical influences, particularly the finely painted semi-nude male figure lower left, and demonstrates something of the Orientalist—several of the figures being attacked wear turbans, for instance. The setting is as dramatic as the action unfolding within it: high cliffs rise to the left, while the canyon continues into the far distance visible middle right.
     
    The painting, oil on canvas, is held within a carved giltwood frame.
