For What Was I Created?

 


lemewsee:<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />William Holbrook Beard, For What Was I Created?, ca. 1886, Oil on canvas, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn<br /><br /><br />From the National Museum of Wildlife Art website:<br /><br /><br />Beard became an immensely popular animal painter, and he painted a large variety of animals, favoring rabbits, cats, monkeys, squirrels, and especially bears. Both lauded and criticized for his humorous satires, he often substituted animals for humans in his visual social commentary. He represented the condition of man and universal concerns by painting allegorical and fantasy subjects. He also produced work drawn from high and low literature, depicting characteristics of jealousy, pride, drunkenness, and greed.
