Did You Know?

Although it may look like the artist used colored paper, the bold yellow in this work is actually printed.


Paul Ranson used curving, wavelike forms to depict a stylized tiger in this lithograph. The artist was influenced by the calligraphic forms and heavy outlines that characterized Japanese prints, adopting these qualities in his own work. The print was created for L'Estampe Originale, a publication issued during the 1890s that presented a curated selection of original prints by contemporary artists to collectors.
