Web Extra: About Lion and Leopard
Lion and Leopard is a recently Philadelphia published Literary Historical Fiction novel written by Nathaniel Popkin. The origin of this book originates from the mysterious death of John Lewis Krimmel in 1821 at a mill pond where upstream, there was Charles Willson Peale frantically trying to build a mill but failing. Krimmel was an innovative urban street scene artist ahead of his time and slightly unwelcomed for his free will to include all kinds of races and classes in his art, while Peale was an eminent artist and founder of museums. Popkin gives us a glimpse of this impactful mysterious death of Krimmel and intrigues us by telling us more about the fact that these two prominent artist knew each other. Were they rivals? What happened? Did Peale accidentally affect the death of Krimmel? Or was there something more to this death?
