Heart_of_the_Jungle_51.112.5

Our Inspiration:The Repast of the Lion

Henri Rousseau (le Douanier) (French, 1844–1910)
Oil on canvas, 44 3/4 x 63 in., ca. 1907
Bequest of Sam A. Lewisohn, 1951   51.112.5

This work was probably shown in the Salon d’Automne of 1907, but it treats a theme that Rousseau first explored in his painting titled Surprised! (1891) at the National Gallery, London.  He based the exotic vegetation of his many jungle pictures on studies that he made in Paris’s botanical gardens, and adapted the wild beasts from popular ethnographic journals and illustrated children’s books.
