The painting hangs in Gatsby palace in room between other paintings. We can see the room when Gatsby is talking to Nick Carraway about his real past.

Stubbs painted more exotic animals including lions, tigers, giraffes, monkeys, and rhinoceroses, which he was able to observe in private menageries. He became preoccupied with the theme of a wild horse threatened by a lion and produced several variations on this theme. These and other works became well known at the time through engravings of Stubbs's work, which appeared in increasing numbers in the 1770s and 1780s.
