Volmar d'aprés Géricault. Lith. de Villain
Lithograph, image 170 x 220mm (6½ x 8½"). Collector's stamp of [?]Paul and Véronique Sanchez verso (probably variant of L.3289).
Horse attacked by a lion, after Géricault. Prior to 1822, Géricault had been able to live without much thought to the saleability of his works owing to a comfortable annuity he received following the death of his mother. However, the loss of part of his fortune in 1822 required him to produce work designed to appeal to dealers and collectors, with pictures of horses forming a large part of his output at this time (although he had painted horses throughout his brief career). The subject of a horse attacked by a tiger was, of course, closely associated with Stubbs, Northcote and other British painters of the previous generation.
