Peter Paul Rubens
Study of Daniel in the lions' Den

Daniel in the Lions' Den is a 1615 painting by the Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens, now in the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC.

The subject is from Daniel 6:1-28. Rubens modelled the lions on a Moroccan species, examples of which were then in the Spanish governor's menagerie in Brussels. In 1618 he acquired more than a hundred pieces of classical sculpture, in exchange for this painting, eight others and a sum of money.
