James Jebusa Shannon: Jungle Tales

Jungle Tales: James Jebusa Shannon

Jungle Tales is a painting by Sir James Jebusa Shannon depicting the artist’s wife reading a book to his daughter and an unknown girl, presumably a friend of his daughters, before bedtime.

The name of the canvas is likely a reference to the famous ‘Jungle Book’ which was released a year earlier to the painting.

Jungle Tales, also known as ‘Contes de la Jungle’ can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
