This portrait shows Professor Remus Lupin, Harry Potter’s Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. Lupin taught for only one year at Hogwarts, resigning when it was revealed he was a werewolf. Lupin stands with his hands in his pockets, averting his gaze from the viewer. A poster of the Full Moon hangs ominously in the background. Lupin’s surname echoes the Latin word for wolf, lupus. Remus was one of the legendary founders of Rome, suckled by a wolf.
