Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description In many of Barye's watercolors, the subjects appear in profile. This orientation resulted from his practice of using calques, or tracings, to transfer the outlines of the animals to the watercolor paper. He would then reinforce the contours with ink before painting in the backgrounds.
