Bonheur was particularly interested in felines, as evident in this Atlas lion which the background mountain references. The work’s title with its Spanish connection also evokes liberty, rebelliousness and courage; values that Bonheur expressed in her own life and through her depictions of animals, which became the principal subject of her work.
