Additional Information

Wild Harvest: The Animal Art of Bob Kuhn, Sporting Classics & Wildlife Art Magazine, 1997: p. 74-75.

Although strongly associated with North American wildlife, Bob Kuhn was an avid painter of African subjects. In his book Wild Harvest, Kuhn describes After the Short Rains: “When my wife and I drove up to this group, they were dozing or grooming in the cool shade, and at peace with the world. The new green of their carpet meant the presence of grass-eaters on which they feed, and each member of this small pride had a full belly. Lions within Africa’s game reserves are generally good tempered, so we sat quietly inside the vehicle, almost within the family confines, recording every shift of position, change of expression, everything. It was nothing like watching the thrill of a stalk, but fascinating nonetheless.”
