Summary: 
The emaciated captive Thylacine (Thylacinus cynocephalus) depicted in Joseph Gleeson’s painting is an unfortunate reminder of the species’ persecution at human hands. Gleeson was a US painter, and his is the only artistic work ever made of a Thylacine with cubs. The animals were held at the Smithsonian National Zoo. The pup (a female) portrayed here in the mother’s pouch was sick on arrival and died shortly thereafter, on 12 September 1902. The cubs at foot were likely between 4 and 5 months old. Typically, the mother would not have tolerated a healthy pup of that age returning to the pouch so she must have been aware that the youngster was ill. Source: Wikimedia Commons.
