This tense landscape oil painting was completed in the Early 20th Century. It is signed MONTOYA at the bottom left. Besides this signature, not much else is known about the painter. The landscape portrays two lions, poised atop a craggy terrain, with prey most likely in their sight, but out of the viewer's field of vision.
The painting is in good condition. It has appropriate wear for its age. The surface craquelure of the paint only adds to the painting's mystique as both an image & object. The canvas is mounted & framed a gilded , ebonized wood frame.
