Find a once-glimpsed photo of a little girl walking a lion.

I remember seeing a photograph of a young girl, perhaps 3 or 4 years old, walking a lion on a chain leash. I saw this in a book on Surrealism at a book fair in Avignon, France. Can you help me find the picture again and identify its creator?

Googling for lion+girl+other identifying details, hasn't helped. This is a mock-up
of what I remember the picture looking like. The picture was in black and white, but I'm not sure if that was because the book was monochrome or the picture itself was. I saw it in 2000 or 2001, but I'm confident that the photo was from early in the 20th century - I think
it was showing inspiration for the Surrealists.
