About this artwork

Delacroix or a close copyist looked to the artist’s masterful Lion of the Atlas Mountains (1927.1646) when producing this faithful sheet, including background details of the cave. Like the paintings copied after Delacroix that have only been recently reattributed to Andrieu, drawings that appear to be by Delacroix remain in high demand.
