Loliondo Lion Charge, 1964

Silver Print, oversized unique gelatin silver print with ink and blood
33 х 50 in. (83.82 x 127 cm.)

Lot description
Printed later. Unique oversized gelatin silver print, with blood artwork in original frame.

Accompanied by Certificate of Authenticity and Bill of Sale from The Time Is Always Now Gallery.

Paper measures 33 x 50 in. (83.8 x 127 cm.)

This unique work, executed in 1964, displays the central photograph surrounded by a wreath of smeared blood and spattered ink. Here, Beard continues to explore his ongoing fascination with Africa by focusing his lens on one of the continent's most regal indigenous species: the lion. The photograph depicts a close-up of the imposing beast as he stalks unseen prey, his front leg raised slightly as if preparing to pounce.
