While the great George Stubbs was most widely recognized for his mastery in equestrian painting, his profound knowledge of anatomy made him the perfect choice to portray the wondrous beasts brought back by British officials from their adventures in Africa and the East. Being so, when Sir George Pigot, Governor-General of Madras, returned to England after passing on his position bringing with him a collection of what he called “wild beasts and curiosities,” he made sure Stubbs was hired to portray the members of the collection in all their glory.
One of the very few lucky survivors of the harsh eight-month maritime trip from India, the cheetah portrayed in this 1765 oil on canvas, was presented by Sir George Pigot to King George III. The king’s uncle, William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, also known as “Butcher Cumberland” over his action in the Battle of Culloden, heard from Pigot that the Mogul Emperor Akbar the Great would have kept a thousand cheetas trained for hunting like British nobles kept foxhounds, and immediately decided to prepare the beast for that purpose.
A demonstration was arranged on June 30th, 1764, at Windsor Great Park, where two of Pigot’s Indian servants brought the cheetah in blindfolded with a silk ribbon. A stag had been prepared to serve as the target of the demonstration, and as soon as the feline had the fabric removed from its eyes, the servants motioned towards the prey, which the cheetah immediately chased after. Sadly for the fabulous feline, the stag was not willing prey and was able to rebuff the cheetah’s attempts three times, after which the cheetah gave up and went off in search of more amiable prey, which he found in a nearby herd of deer. Still, the demonstration was not considered a failure, but great entertainment and both the cheetah and the surviving stag were rewarded, the cheetah with a leg of deer and the stag with a silver collar and being protected for the rest of his natural life.
While the painting is meant to celebrate the demonstration, its background does not portray Windsor Great Park, but instead the lands of Sir Richard Grosvenor’s estate, Stubbs’ chief patron. It offers us a unique snapshot of a time when a significant part of the world and its fauna still instilled awe and amazement in British hearts and minds.
