This is the first of the jungle scenes on which Rousseau's fame chiefly depends. This painting was exhibited at the Salon desIndépendants in 1891 with the title 'Surpris!'.
It was later described by the artist as representing a tiger hunting explorers.
Rousseau claimed that he had gainedknowledge of the jungle while serving as a
regimental bandsman in Mexico in the 1860s,but this seems to be a fiction and his
paintings were probably inspired by visits to the botanical gardens in Paris and by prints.
The figure of the tiger may have been basedon a print after a pastel by Delacroix.
