If anyone has been the Keen’s Steakhouse in New York City knows, the giant portrait of the tiger in the upstairs dining room is a must see. With that in mind, we selected this painting of a mother tiger with her cubs to honor the power, majesty and grace of the wild tiger. We just love this one and hope you will do. Just notice the detail of the reflection of the gorgeous cat in the pool in front of it. Wonderful stuff.
Here is the official description:
By Jean-Léon Gérôme circa 1884
Gérôme attributed the success of his animal paintings to his early studies at the menagerie of the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. The soft handling and the unemphatic drawing in this painting are characteristic of Gérôme’s work from the 1880s. It was probably painted about 1884, when the artist exhibited another nocturnal scene featuring tigers, Night in the Desert, at the Paris Salon (now Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh).
