|Very interesting and dramatic depiction of, presumably, the Great Flood of biblical times. I have seen various similar scenes over the years, so I imagine this is after a more well know and earlier piece. This painting shows a mother tiger with her cub in her mouth perched on a high rock away from the swirling water below. It also shows a man and woman hoisting their children upon the rock with the tiger away from the flood waters. The painting is framed in a giltwood frame with great old patina and cracks in the corners. The cracks are certainly damage, but really don't detract in the least, instead add more interest to the overall piece. The painting is signed KM, and dated 33, I assume 1933. There is something written below that, but I can't make it out. In the frame, the painting measures 10" by 12" approximately. The sight dimensions are 4" by 6.5".|
