Description Both Barye and his friend the painter Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) copied the image of a lion gnawing a hunter from the famous painting "The Lion Hunt" by Peter Paul Rubens (1577-1640) in the Alte Pinakothek, Munich. The lightly sketched lioness on Barye's sheet was also taken from the same painting. This drawing may also be related to Barye's earliest known work, the Milo of Croton medallion (Walters 27.191).
