Head on view of seated lion
Théodore Géricault (French, 1791 - 1824)
1812 - 1814
15.2 x 10.6 cm (6 x 4 3/16 in.)
Dark, wavy strokes form the lion's shaggy mane, piercing eyes, and alert ears. The rest of his body is merely suggested with pale lines that break away from the form in turbulent flutters.
