The Repast of the Lion
The Repast of the Lion is an early 20th century painting by French post-impressionist Henri Rousseau. Done in oil on canvas, the work depicts a feeding lion in a jungle setting. The painting expands upon some of Rousseau's late 19th century work Surprise!, and the foliage depicting in the painting was inspired by the artist's studying of Paris' botanical gardens. Lion is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
