Tiger Walking

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The animal sculptor Antoine-Louis Barye regularly visited the Forest of Fontainebleau from the late 1840s and rented a house at Barbizon starting in 1867. In his watercolors, he created imaginary scenes by inserting wild animals he had seen in the zoo into the Fontainebleau landscape. Here, a tiger appears against the barren rocks and sands of the Gorges d'Apremont.
