This painting and 'Scene at a Bullfight: Diversión de España' are by a follower of Goya who was influenced by Goya's late technique. They are related in reverse to the set of four Bordeaux lithographs published by Goya in December 1825. He made one painting of a bullfight in Paris in 1824 for his friend Joaquín María Ferrer, now in the J. Paul Getty Museum. While Eugenio Lucas y Velázquez also painted variations on the Bordeaux lithographs, they are different in approach and handling. A similar unidentified collector's mark appears on 'The Forge' (Frick Collection, New York) and 'Les Jeunes' (Musée des Beaux Arts, Lille), both by Goya.
