Jungle Tales, 1895, James Jebusa Shannon.
"Shannon studied in London during the 1880s and remained there, enjoying success as a society portraitist and figure painter. Jungle Tales portrays the artist's wife reading to their daughter, Kitty, shown in profile, and another child. The painting's title and date and its London origin suggest the little group is captivated by Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book, which had appeared in 1894...".
I saw this painting in The Met the other day and loved it - the power of a story to engage and enrapture!
