Delacroix image

Pen and brown ink, and watercolor, over graphite

This drawing is one of about fifty that Delacroix executed of tigers. It most closely relates to an 1829 lithograph, Royal Tiger, and an 1846/47 painting, Crouching Royal Tiger. The presence of the artist's signature and the existence of a second version of the same composition document the success of the composition first arrived at in the lithograph and confirm that Delacroix conceived of the present drawing as an independent work.
