In one of his many adventures to Africa, painter Wilhelm Kuhnert was given the nickname of Lion. And while lions are his most prolific subject, tigers are a close second. The German-born artist studied at the Royal Academy of Arts in Berlin, where he discovered he had a fondness for wildlife. Travels to far-off places to paint exotic creatures soon followed. His first trips to Africa occurred in 1891. The artist was estimated to have painted more than 5,500 works, though many were lost or destroyed in World War II. Today fewer than 1,000 works are known to exist.
