This painting titled "Study of Lions," created in the 18th or 19th century by M.C. Fehr, is a detailed oil on canvas depicting a lion and a lioness at the entrance of their den. The artwork showcases the excellent quality and condition of the period, reflecting a naturalistic study of these majestic animals. The lion and lioness are portrayed in a calm and watchful pose, with the male lion standing protectively over the female, who is resting beside him.

The artist's skill is evident in the meticulous rendering of the lions' fur and the rocky texture of their den. The interplay of light and shadow enhances the depth and realism of the scene. The overall composition is balanced, with the lions placed slightly off-center to the right, creating a dynamic tension within the frame.

The painting is signed by the artist and presented in a finely detailed gilt frame, adding to its elegance and historical value. This study is not only an excellent example of animal portraiture from the German school but also a testament to the artist's keen observation and ability to capture the essence of wildlife in their natural habitat.
