Bernard Picart

A lion lying down, 1729

About the object

Picart's »Recueïl de Lions« (collection of 42 lion motifs) includes both etchings based on his own designs, as well as drawings by Charles Le Brun, Albrecht Dürer and Rembrandt - like this recumbent lion. The result is a comprehensive, almost scientific picture book of these animals.
