Price includes UK shipping.

c.1950s, Karl Weschke

Edition Number: N/A
Unsigned, but sold directly for one of the Weschke family members.

In good condition.

Framed in a reconditioned bronze/gold-coloured frame – it shows some wear / marks but suits this big cat down to the ground (see photographs for more idea of frame condition). The frame also features some nice old, slightly wavy glass.

Mounted in conservation standard board

The lion undoubtedly embodied something symbolic for Weschke, and the theme probably dates from the time he worked as an assistant lion feeder in a circus during the 1950s. The drawing Lion dates from that time, and bears comparison with the woodcut Tiger Tiger purchased by the Tate in 1997.

Availability: In stock

The frame is 'pre-owned' and as such has some imperfections, dings marks etc. However, it's a splendid choice for this drawing.
PLEASE NOTE: if you purchase this from outside the UK, it will be shipped lightly rolled in a tube (no frame or mount).
